So, Hollywood, here are 12 iconic movie roles that we absolutely do not need reprised.

CRACKED MARCUS & KEVIN COPELAND Marlon Wayans hated the makeup process, and said that he would do a sequel if they could do it digitally. A sequel has been in development for years but thankfully hasn't been produced... Yet. White Chicks Dud
