Relatively unknown at the time, Harlem’s own, Bokeem Woodbine got his start as an extra in Ernest Dickerson‘s classic film, Juice. After a starring role in HBO’s Strapped, Woodbine would go on to have a small, bit part in Spike Lee’s Crooklyn as Richard.

From then on, his stock continued to rise as Bokeem would go on to star in pictures such as Dead Presidents, Jason’s Lyric, Panther, and NBC’s Battery Park.

Since then, he’s been keeping a low profile, being featured in Little Murder and completed his own picture called The Fifth Commandment.

      Sadly, Aunt Song (the actress Frances Foster) passed from a cerebral hemorrhage in June 1997. Viola (Patriece Nelson) hasn’t done any other roles since appearing in Crooklyn.
