Bill Nunn passes away aged 62

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Radio Raheem himself Bill Nunn has passed away at the age of 62 years old.

Nunn made his acting debut in the 1988 Spike Lee film School Daze, but his breakthrough role was as Radio Raheem in Lee’s Do the Right Thing and as Nino Brown’s bodyguard Duh Duh Duh Man in New Jack City. It was Lee that announced that Nunn had passed away earlier this morning in his hometown of Pittsburgh:

“Radio Raheem is now resting in power,” the director wrote. “Radio Raheem will always be fighting da powers dat be. May God watch over Bill Nunn.”

He followed this up with:

“Radio Raheem. Let me tell you the story of Right Hand, Left Hand. It’s a tale of good and evil. Hate! It was with this hand that Cane iced his brother. Love! These five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man. The right hand: the hand of love. The story of life is this: static. One hand is always fighting the other hand, and the left hand is kicking much ass. I mean, it looks like the right hand, Love is finished. But hold on, stop the presses the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the left hand on the ropes, now, that’s right. Yea, Boom, it’s a devastating right and Hate is hurt, he’s down. Ooh! Ooh! Left-Hand Hate KOed by Love. If I love you, I love you. But if I hate you…Mookie: there it is, Love and Hate. Raheem I love you bruh…”

Some of his other film credits include Lee’s Mo’ Better Blues and He Got Game, Regarding Henry, Sister Act, Canadian Bacon, The Last Seduction, Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead, New Jack City, Runaway Jury, Firehouse Dog, and the Spider-Man trilogy as Joseph “Robbie” Robertson.
