Grier used his success on the show as a springboard to roles in movies such as 1992's "Boomerang" and 1994's "Blankman," alongside "In Living Color" castmate Damon Wayans, and the Pauly Shore movie "In the Army Now." He went on to land roles in movies such as "Jumanji" and "McHale's Navy" and on the sitcoms "Martin" and "Damon," again with Wayans, before starring in his own short-lived sitcom, "DAG," in 2000-01.
