Max Julien

Actor/writer

Born - 1 January 1933, Washington, DC, USA

Narrow-faced, multi-talented Afro-American writer, poet and sculptor, who had a brief acting career in indie and blaxploitation movies before pursuing other fields. After a little-seen debut in The Black Klansman/I Crossed the Color Line (1966), he made The Savage Seven, Psychout, Uptight (all 1968), Getting Straight (1970), The Mack (1973), Cleopatra Jones (1973) and Thomasine and Bushrod (1974), also scripting the latter two movies. Many years later, he returned for one or two cameo appearances, including How to Be a Player (1997), American Pimp (1999) and the short Restore (2001), his last. He died from cardio pulmonary arrest on his 89th birthday.
