"What's the most egregious example of a not hood person playing a hood"
Thu Nov-07-19 10:40 AM by Buddy_Gilapagos

  

          

in a movie.

I nominate Daman Wayans starring as T-Bone in Colors.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4wmj-Nq9xA

I know the Wayans are from the projects, but he ain't this dude.

Damon played him right. T-Bone wasn't right in the head no way so when you add drugs into the mix, that's what you get.

now gimme my bunny rabbit!!

I know he wasn’t playing a hood dude but he was so unbelievable on that role.

Love the movie but his mannerisms always cracked me up. You could tell he practiced his stance in a mirror for months.

shut up already, damn

...to the hood? I forgot what his mom's hood was like in the movie, so I'm not sure.

Same with Ricky. He was in the hood, but played sports so he was shielded from a lot of the BS (until his crew got mixed-up w/ them bloods).

He spent weekends and summers with his dad too

More than enough time to have a little swag.

He fit the role for the movie but personally he was always a fish out of water in that movie.

Cuba def looked unnatural even playing a fish out of water in that role. I can picture exactly what you're talking about re: him practicing in front of a mirror for months for that role lol. He's so stiff. But it worked.

Great movie.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

That first run...48 Hours, Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places...Eddie WAS that young, hip, street-wise dude.

Then never again...

When he came back for the sequels and Golden Child, he almost seemed to be doing an impression of his younger self.

Then after his long string of family movies, he tried to recapture that character in Tower Heist, and it was painful to watch. Actually, Charlie Murphy would have hit that role out of the park.

Maybe it was the timing of the movie but he had me shook. Reminded me of my boy but with a gun instead of his fist.

Ionno if it was seeing it in NYC and paying so much to see it but that movie had me and my sister on the edge of our seats.

Colors tho... crazy how a movie that was so real is now comical once you get older.

shut up already, damn

Dude just popped-up up in the projects all lite with no spanish accent/connects and no recognizable skills. Didn't hustle, wasn't a shooter, wasn't a brain, wasn't a front/legit guy, etc.

Played a tough in original gangsters

IDK, he might even be a real hood dude

But the contrast of Braxton and OG Spyro = LOL

I'll never forget the image of Braxton wearing a doo-rag and thugging it up

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117260/mediaviewer/rm821711104

still funny.

I remember seeing him in walking around Soho maybe 20 years ago and dude's gait & style of dress indicated a very "preppy" upbringing. His wiki seems to back that up also, yet he was cast in all sorts of thug roles back in the day. See Jason's Lyric, Strapped, Caught Up, etc.

This is more recent, but you can kinda see what I'm saying from this pic.

Yes he's from Harlem, but so am I, and I'm not "hood".
