What’s up! What’s up! What’s up! The cast of the 90’s hit TV show Martin has finally reunited. But it’s not for the reason that fans have hoped for. Recently we’ve reported the passing of the shows co-star Tommy Ford. Ford who portrayed “Tommy Strawn” one of Martin’s best friends on the show all five seasons that aired from 1992-1997. Tommy passed on October 12th in Metro Atlanta hospital surrounded by family and friends from a ruptured aneurysm.
Well the gang reunited to pay respect and say final goodbyes at Ford’s funeral. Co-stars Tichina Arnold and Carl Payne posted photos of the group attached with heartfelt messages. Although Martin Lawrence himself isn’t pictured, he was present at the services, Arnold confirmed. I guess he and Carl Payne (Cole) may still have some unresolved beef.

Lawrence talked with Entertainment Weekly about his relationship with Tommy Ford saying,”Tommy was not only a great costar, but he was a great mand and friend. He always brought with him his spirituality, a positive attitude and so much joy. I am sad the world lost a great talent and that I lost a wonderful friend. God bless him and his family.”
