Actor Nunn loses cancer fight
Bill Nunn, a veteran character actor whose credits ranged from the Spider-Man movie franchise to such Spike Lee films as Do the Right Thing and He GotGame, has died. Nunn’s wife, Donna, said he died at his home in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The 63-year-old had been battling cancer. A longtime Pittsburgh resident and graduate of Morehouse College, Nunn broke through in movies in the late 1980s, first in Lee’s School Daze, then in the Oscar-nominated Do the Right Thing, as the ill-fated Radio Raheem, who dies when choked by police during a street brawl in Brooklyn. “Radio Raheem is now resting in power,” Lee wrote on Instagram, also calling Nunn “My Dear Friend” and “My Dear Morehouse Brother”.
