Cannon will next been seen with a starring role in Mark Rydell's Jump Shot with acting heavyweights Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito, Kelsey Grammer, Ray Liotta and Forrest Whitaker.

One of Cannon's newest creations is the MTV show titled Wild ‘N Out. Cannon not only created, but also writes for and stars in this hip, edgy, no holds barred comedy. On the small screen Cannon is best known for being the co-creator, executive producer and star of his own sketch-comedy, variety show The Nick Cannon Show on Nickelodeon.
