  1. This was really sad to hear. It’s hard to believe that Do The Right Thing came out in 1989. It was a hot racially charged summer. Public Enemy had the song Fight the Power on the radio. I do find it odd that Nunn passed away the same week all these killing of blacks by cops is going on. Especially since his character Radio Raheem was choked to death by the police. Much like Eric Garner. Strange indeed.

  2. This man is a legend incognito. Besides ‘New Jack’ I think his lines as the uncle in ‘He Got Game’ was all too inspiring if not eerie as I am set into my late 30s. ‘You think I’m too old to have dreams?’ I was 18 when I saw that Denzel Washington / Ray Allen movie and had a whole life ahead of me but problems along the way not only impeded but derailed my life forever.

  3. R.I.P. 😦 I remember him in those movies, as well as “Regarding Henry”. He played Harrison Ford’s physical therapist in that movie; he played a very good part.
