Personal life 
Martin was born in Harlem, New York, and is a graduate of New York University. He is married to former Martin and My Wife and Kids star Tisha Campbell-Martin. The couple wed on August 17, 1996. Together they have two sons: Xen Martin (August 8, 2001)  and Ezekiel Czar (September 8, 2009).
Martin played NCAA Division III basketball at NYU and was signed as an un-drafted free agent to a non-guaranteed contract in the National Basketball Association (NBA) with the New York Knicks in 1989. However, he was soon cut and never actually played in the NBA. This led to him pursuing an acting career.
His love for sports was the motivation for him to launch his own sports agency, "Impact Sports." Duane started "Impact Sports," with 2 clients holding $1 million in contracts .
After acquiring an extensive real estate holdings portfolio valued in the millions, Duane recently launched a real estate company which will revitalize homes in the inner city by giving underprivileged families the rare opportunity to become home owners.
Martin first made his TV appearance in the short-lived NBC comedy series Out All Night, which also starred Patti LaBelle, Vivica A. Fox and Morris Chestnut. He appeared in the Boyz II Men music video "I'll Make Love to You". He was a cast member with Vivica A. Fox and Jon Cryer in the short-lived Fox sitcom Getting Personal. He portrayed TV reporter Robert James on the The CW TV series All of Us. He guest starred on his wife's sitcom Rita Rocks (2009) as Chuck; and Fernando on The Paul Reiser Show (2011).
Notable feature film roles include Willie in White Men Can't Jump (1992), Jr. Philips in The Inkwell (1994), and Kyle Lee Watson in Above the Rim (1994). In the romantic comedy The Seat Filler (2004), Martin plays a lead role as law student Derrick who falls in love with a celebrity.
