Life and career[edit]

Love was born Langston Faizon Santisima[1] in Santiago de Cuba and grew up as a "military brat"; he was raised in Southeast San Diego, California and Newark, New Jersey because of his father's career in the United States Navy.[1] Love got his start as a stand-up comedian at age 15 and made his acting debut in an off-Broadway at the age of 19 shortly after graduating from Morse High School.[2] His motion-picture debut, Bebe's Kids, had him providing the voice of comedian Robin Harris, who died before production began on the film; Love offered a close vocal impression of Harris. He then had a role in The Meteor Man, starring Robert Townsend. Townsend then cast Love in a co-starring role on his sitcom The Parent 'Hood.

He followed up this role with a breakout performance as the drug supplier Big Worm in the 1995 film Friday. Follow-up films have included 3 Strikes, Elf, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, Money Talks, Wonderland, The Fighting Temptations, and Idlewild.[3][4][5][6] In 2001, Love guest-starred in the Ludacris single "Freaky Thangs" from the album Word of Mouf. The same year, he made a cameo appearance as a bus driver, in the music video for Lil Jon & The East Side Boys' single "Put Yo Hood Up". In 2004, Love appeared in the action video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as the voice of Sean "Sweet" Johnson, the leader of the Grove Street Families and the older brother of the game's protagonist, Carl Johnson.

Love co-starred in Couples Retreat (2009), a comedy film chronicling four couples who partake in therapy sessions at a tropical island resort.[7] In 2011 Love starred in a theatrical production of Our Town by Thornton Wilder, alongside Washington Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Etan Thomas.[8]

In 2012, he played the role of Stringer Bell in the satirical trailer for The Wire: The Musical. In June of that year, Love started to appear in a series of commercials for the pre-paid wireless provider Boost Mobile, promoting its new 4G phones.
