Martin Reunion Off the Table


Earlier this week comedic actor Martin Lawrence dashed the hopes of fans everywhere after confirming the Bad Boys movie franchise 3rd sequel "Bad Boys for Life" was probably not going to happen [click here if you missed that].

Martin has more bad news...

Despite the looming 25th anniversary of the premier of his ground breaking sitcom "Martin" there are no plans for a reunion special.

'Ol Marty Mar tells Page Six,
“A reunion? No, we’ve done everything that we could do. There will be no reunion.”
As for his co-stars Martin claims,
“I talk to Tichina [Arnold], Carl [Anthony Payne II] and I ran into Tisha [Campbell-Martin]. Yeah, we’ve talked.”

Fun Fact: "Martin" ended after five seasons in 1997 when Tisha Campbell-Martin filed a sexual harassment suit against Martin Lawrence and refused to film scenes with him.

I've always side-eyed Tisha ever since then...she had put out some music back in the day and i think ahe thought she was going to blow up...she didn't, and had to work her "regular " job on Martin. Misery loves company, I guess.

Snitch, I wouldn't consider sexual assault/sexual misconduct a "fun fact"! IJS.....No tommy, no reunion .

Thomas Ford aka Tommy died last October.

Tisha Campbell continued to work on TV series not encountering any issues. I believe Martin was power tripping during the series era. He went on to do movies. I do wonder what happened between he and Will making BB2 so difficult to complete. The movie is a wonderful franchise.

10:08 Martin was power tripping. Carl Anthony Payne did an interview confirming it. He said he also didn't get along with Martin behind the scenes because of the way Martin belittled him and treated him. He said blamed it on the fact that Martin was "battling his own demons" which I took as either mental health or drug abuse.

A "Martin" reunion with no Tisha and references to the late Tommy could work. But only with the first 3 season's writers and a sober Martin Lawrence. Perhaps Martin helping to raise his grandkids as a divorced grandfather and mentions of "Detroit" and it's attempts at a come back.

If they can reboot "One Day at a Time" and "Full House" as dry as those shows were, they can reboot "Martin."

Martin still doesn't fuck with Tisha and I don't blame him....but I believe another added component is the fact Tommy is no longer here...FYI I read he barely said a word to Tisha at Tommy's funeral...soooo there's your answer

@11:00 Drug abuse...pay attention to season 5 it's apparent there, starting with the episodes where his beard was growing out...his attitude was different, very laid back, slow speaking, voice was different...the whole feel for the show was different by then

~ Martin always dabbled, but he turned into a full-blown addict on the set of "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate."

Lynn Whitfield basically stayed locked in her trailer because Bobby Brown and his cousins were actually freebasing coke like it was 1983 all over the set. They were groping the hair and makeup people, PAs, and Craft Services staff (male and female)

Bobby urged Martin to try it and was hooked. He couldn't chase that high which lead to smoking Gorilla and specially blended Dust you can only get in Santa Monica.

Everyone knows Bobby Brown is who they send when they want to keep someone "in line" or controlled with drugs. He's a regular Cathy Smith.

He got out alive (unlike Belushi) but Martin hasn't been right since.

(This is all alleged of course.)

Fun fact: Tisha is the voice of Cracky on Legends of Chamberlain Heights...a character with hardly any lines.

Just an observation said...

I don't blame Martin. Funny how he has been doing fine since then. If I was blamed for something I didn't do, we ain't talking, ain't no let's hash it out. Everyone else has been struggling career wise, with the exception of Tichina Arnold.

i always wondered how tichina arnold stayed close friend with both martin and tischa. any insights, crew?

Martin pissed somebody off. BOTH projects a no-go? I suspected the mental meltdown had drugs in it somewhere.

There was talk that Martin and Tisha actually had an ongoing affair that ended with the assault charge.
