It's been more than twenty years since the groundbreaking sketch comedy In Living Color debuted on the Fox Network and the reunited cast has been making the rounds on various talk shows to celebrate the mile stone.
Interestingly enough In Living Color co-creator Damon Wayans has been M.I.A for the reunions and is refusing to allow his likeness be part of an upcoming tribute...
From Dead Line
Damon Wayans, who is credited as co-creator of In Living Color with his brother Keenen Ivory Wayans, was a key In Living Color writer-performer and played some of its most memorable characters.
Sources close to the actor say he declined to attend the ceremony “because it just wasn’t his thing.” But while Foxx (as well as every other In Living Color alum) allowed TV Land to use ILC footage on the awards special, Damon Wayans declined the network’s request for permission to use any scenes with him.
Clips with Damon were shown at the event but, as a result of his decision, such classics as Men on Film and Homey D. Clown had to be cut out of the TV special.
