Actor

Born - 20 October 1952, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Big, burly, friendly-looking Afro-American actor with bristling moustache, a human teddy bear who brought warmth and commanding presence to a wide variety of roles. Graduating from teaching acting to acting itself, he made a low-key film debut in Sharky's Machine (1981), but it was in films directed by Spike Lee that he first made his mark: School Daze (1988), Do the Right Thing (1989) and Mo' Better Blues (1990). Subsequent credits include Regarding Henry (1991), Sister Act (1992), Blood Brothers (1993), The Last Seduction (1994), Canadian Bacon (1995), Money Train (1995), Bulletproof (1996), Extreme Measures (1996), Mad City (1997), He Got Game (1998), Lockdown (2000), Spider-Man (2002), Runaway Jury (2003), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Out There (2006), Spider-Man 3 (2007), Help Me, Help You (2009) and Won't Back Down (2012), his last. He died from cancer.
