Donald Faison

  1. Tupac Shakur, Juice, 1991.   For his and Gerard Brown’s film school script moving in to real cinemas, first-time director Ernest Dickerson (Spike Lee’s regular cinematographer) saw four hopefuls for Quincy: rappers Anthony “Treach” Criss and Money-B, Donald Faison (chosen for a student), hip-hopper Daryl Mitchell.  Or, indeed five when when Shakur, who’d simply gone along for the ride with pal Anthony “Treach” Criss, asked to read. And nailed Bishop when he hurled a chair across the room. He then used his new found juice (’90s slang for respect and power) to get Criss a cameo as one of Radames’ homies.(And to think director Richard Donner had wanted to turn all the fury into a comedy. Lethal Weapon 95?)
