#BillNunn aka #RadioRaheem hass passed away at 63! [details]

We have lost another piece of pop culture history.  Actor Bill Nunn, a regular in friend Spike Lee’s films and best known as the towering, boombox-toting Radio Raheem in “Do The Right Thing,” died Saturday morning. He was 63.

The 6-foot-3 Nunn — who also appeared in Lee’s “School Daze,” “Mo’ Better Blues” and “He Got Game” — passed away in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Lee announced via Facebook. Both were Morehouse College alums, with Nunn graduating in 1976.

“‘School Daze’ was one of the highlights of my life because it was the first chance I had to act on screen,” he once said. “I would have been happy if that had been it, because I proved that I could do it.”

REST IN POWER Bill Nunn! Thanks for the ICONIC characters you brought to LIFE!
