Romany’s family is from Trinidad. He left Brooklyn as a teenager and moved to Baytown, Texas, where he went to Ross S Sterling High School. Soon after he finished high school education, Malco formed a rap group “R.M.G.”, andthe band moved to Los Angeles in search of a record company and the bigger scene, and signed a contract with Virgin Records in 1991. The company asked them to change the group’s name, and the “College Boyz” was born. The single called “Victim of the Ghetto” was a complete hit and reached the No.2 on the rap charts in 1992. This success earned him a lot of money, as he became a millionaire at the age of 24.
Malco started with acting relatively late, at the age of 30. The story is quite interesting – he was a music producer for John Leguizamo’s “The Pest”, and the well-known actor was the one who persuaded Malco to pursue an acting career. By the 2000s, he had already made several appearances, including his big screen debut in “Urban Menace” (1999), starring Ice-T and Snoop Dogg. With the beginning of the 2000s, his career reached a whole new level, as he landed the lead part in VH1’s “Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story” in 2001. The first half of the 2000s was marked by appearances in films such as “The Tuxedo” (2002), “White Boy” (2002), and “True Vinyl” (2004). After that, he was cast in the TV series “Weeds” (2005-2012), opposite Mary-Louise Parker and Elizabeth Perkins, andthe show encouraged him to seek new lead roles in high profile films, as well as adding to his net worth.
This resulted in supporting roles in movies such as “The 40-Year Old Virgin”, “The Love Guru” (2008), “A Little Bit of Heaven” (2011), “Blades of Glory” (2007), and “Baby Mama” (2008). Furthermore, Romany was selected for the role of George St. Cloud in the TV series “No Ordinary Family” (2010-2011), and in 2011 he created and starred in the TV series “Prison Logic: Tijuana Jackson”, as the lead character. The show received quite positive reviews, which only increased his popularity, and resulted in new engagements in the films “Last Vegas” (2013) with Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas, and “Top Five” (2014) alongside Chris Rock, and Rosario Dawson.
Most recently, Romany played Bob Gardner in the TV series “Blunt Talk” (2015), and Gus in the TV series “Mad Dogs” (2015-2106), which increased further his net worth. He will also appear in the film “Almost Christmas”, which is going to be released late in 2016.
Along with careers in both music and film, Malco successfully created several e-commerce businesses, from which his net worth has also benefited.
When it comes to his personal life, Romany married Taryn Dakha – the former ice skater and Jessica Alba’s body double – in 2008. The couple met in 2007 during the production of “The Love Guru”, and married in 2008. While filming “Mad Dogs” in Puerto Rico in 2015, Malco decided to move to the island and has now stated that he’s living the dream and would never leave.
