MARCUS T. PAULK
Marcus Terrell Paulk was born on October 12, 1986 in the sunny city of Los Angeles, California. With all the buzz of Hollywood glamour and celebrity stardom it seems Paulk felt right at home so early in life “street performing” in California’s ever popular Venice Beach, at the impressionable age of 3. But Paulk’s parents seeing the passion and skill he possessed performing at such a small scale, knew that their son was destined for greatness, and decided to take more leadership roles in preparing his career for the future.
It seemed casting was no hard task for Paulk in the start of his career. Seemingly so, the 90s played a pivotal role in the awakening of the talents the Paulk possessed. In 1991 Paulk was cast to do voice over work for the Saturday morning animated show “Hammerman” created by hip hop legend MC Hammer. This was the beginning of a new chapter in Paulk’s life.
After Hammerman, Paulk began guest appearing on some of network TV’s most notable and talked about prime time shows. Shows like “Me and the Boys”, “Thea”, “Grace Under Fire”, “Martin”, “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”, and many more. In 1996 Paulk heightened his career as alter ego Myles Mitchell alongside R&B songstress Brandy playing his older sister “Moesha”. What seemed like such a small role matriculated into 6 seasons of pranks, laughter, joy and sorrow for Paulk. So much so, that Hollywood had to stop and take notice to this child prodigy.
With Paulk’s ambition on the rise, he not only continued to do more and more TV appearances, but began to make his mark on the big screen, with supporting roles in Disney’s “Safety Patrol”, the feature film “Nothing to loose”, and “One Night Stand”, starring Wesley Snipes. In 2005 Paulk co-starred in the blockbuster hit “Rollbounce” next to hip hop artist and fellow actor Bow Wow. The following year, Paulk costarred in another blockbuster film, “Take the Lead” starring Antonio Banderas where he had to train in the art of ballroom dancing to execute such a technical roll. In 2007, Paulk has two must see films out “Parental Guidance Suggested” and “Taking 5”. Look for him in Another Cinderella Story and on the sound track.
With a whole host of acting nominations under his belt Marcus maintains his sanity by being a well rounded individual. He has won numerous championships with his NBAE League Basketball Team, and is in the process of releasing his first LP as a hip hop artist under the stage name “MP”.
