He was born in West Germany, where his father was stationed as a member of the American military. As a teenager, he dreamt of being a boxer and was really good at it. However, an unfortunate injury made him rethink his career choices. Once out of university, he immediately landed in New York City to search for acting jobs and went to ‘The Improv,’ one of America’s most well-known comedy clubs. His performance impressed a few senior executives from ‘Columbia Pictures,’ and he was immediately hired to be part of the show ‘What’s Happening Now!!,’ which marked his first acting job. In 1989, he appeared in the film ‘Do the Right Thing,’ which turned out to be his major career breakthrough. In the 1990s, he appeared in films such as ‘Bad Boys’ and ‘Big Momma’s House’ and established himself in the industry. Of late, Martin has been maintaining a low-key life, giving rise to a lot of speculations about his health and personal life.
