Ac­tor Nunn loses cancer fight

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

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”.
