Delroy Lindo

  1. Robin Harrs, Do The Right Thing, 1988. Spike had seen the London-born Lindo in August Wilson’s sixth Broadway play, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone (fourth of his ten-play Pittsburg Cycle)..  ”That’s how I got to cast him as West Indian Archie in Malcolm X. Then he was in Clockers. So we are now working 25 years. He didn’t tell me, because I forgot; I offered him the role to be one of the [three] corner men [Sweet Dick Willie]  in Do the Right Thing - and he turned it down.” Said Lindo: “Glad Spike didn’t hold that against me!”

  2. Yaphet Kotto, Two If by Sea, 1996.     Australian director Bill Bennett's Hollywood debut budget was slashed and he could no longer afford the Spike Lee's Malcolm X  find.
