Life and career

Love was born Langston Faizon Santisima[1] in Santiago de Cuba and raised in San Diego, California and Newark, New Jersey because of his father's Navy career.[1] Love got his start as a stand-up comedian and made his acting debut in an Off-Broadway at the age of nineteen. His first film Bebe's Kids had him providing the voice of Robin Harris. Harris died before production began and Love replaced him with an accurate impression. 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 dealer Big Worm in the 1995 film Friday. Follow-up films have included Elf, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, Money Talks, Wonderland, The Fighting Temptations, and Idlewild.[2][3][4][5] Love also guests on Ludacris' Freaky Thangs from the album Word of Mouf.

Love co-starred in the 2009 film Couples Retreat, a comedy chronicling four couples who partake in therapy sessions at a tropical island resort.[6]

Many gamers may know Love on the role of Sean "Sweet" Johnson, simply known as Sweet, in the Rockstar North game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
