Mr. Box Office | By RebeccaF | 04/04/2013 | 04:24 PM EDT

The comedian-actor first gained notoriety on HBO's Russell Simmon's Def Comedy Jam, where he is credited for creating the now ubiquitous slang term "booty call." For several years, Bellamy was featured as a VJ and host of several MTV programs including MTV Jams and MTV Beach House before continuing on to star lead in silver-screen roles such as "Love Jones," "How To Be A Player," and "Any Given Sunday." Fun fact: the veteran actor is also cousin to retired NBA Champion All-Star, Shaquille O'Neal.
