How Marlon Wayans Went From Dad Bod to 8-Pack for G.I. Joe

From A Haunted House 2 to his most recent film On the Rocks, Marlon Wayans knows what it takes to prepare for a wide range of movie roles. So, it’s no surprise the actor and comedian was able to give Men’s Health some insight into how he keeps his body right during the latest installment of Vs. The Internet.

Wayans revealed that the commitment comes straight from his own wallet.
