Terry Nolan – Big Momma’s House
By the time the 21st Century rolled around, Martin Lawrence was a massive star and his summer 2000 hit comedy Big Momma’s House only made a stronger case for the box office draw. Seriously, the movie remains one of the funniest of Lawrence’s career and that era in general, 20 years later. In addition to Lawrence, the movie also featured a star-in-the-making with Terrence Howard, Paul Giamatti, Nia Long, and none other than Anthony Anderson.
Appearing as Terry Nolan, the dim-witted security guard who always finds himself at the wrong place at the wrong time, Anthony Anderson pretty much steals every scene he’s in, but those appearances are few and far between. Anderson wasn’t quite the movie star he would become when he appeared in Big Momma’s House, which is probably why he’s not as remembered here.
