Marlon Wayans wishes to weigh in on the Beyonce lip-synching scandal:

"I didn't even know she was singing. i was too busy trying to figure out what the best angle would be to view her butt from. Obama had the best view."

But, seriously folks: Wayans knows how hard it is to sing that song in those circumstances: "If I could lip-synch standup comedy, I'd do it."

Wayans, 40, was in Toronto earlier this week to promote A Haunted House, his new movie that spoofs the found-footage horror genre. It opens here today.

If you know Scary Movie or White Chicks (both of which co-starred his brother Shawn Wayans and were directed by brother Keenen Ivory Wayans), then you know the general territory of a Wayans' comedy.

The star and writer of A Haunted House got his start in 1988 with a small part in I'm Gonna Get You Sucka, a film written and directed by Keenen; Marlon Wayans went on to be part of the hugely successful In Living Color and The Wayans Bros. for TV.
