The following year he moved to Los Angeles and was cast in a small role as a thug, making his feature film debut in the comedy "Home of Angels" (1993). In 1993, Spears was featured in episodes of the NBC sitcom "A Different World", hardly old enough himself to attend the college at which the show was set. He was next cast as Glenn Frey's apprentice sleuth in the short-lived detective series "South of Sunset" (1993-1994, aired on NBC and VH1).<p>Spears would next be known for taking a particularly stinging smack from Regina King while playing Cuba Gooding Jr.'s brother in the Cameron Crowe comedy "Jerry Maguire" (1996).

His impersonations of such celebrities as Eddie Murphy, Tito Jackson, and most memorably James Brown added significantly to the show's appeal.<p>While starring on "Mad TV", Spears continued to work in film. In 1998, he was given the opportunity to play one of his own idols when he was cast as legendary comic Redd Foxx in the Frankie Lymon biopic "Why Do Fools Fall in Love".
