Hey, what ever happened to...? #1

Doug E. Doug

I was watching Hangin' With the Homeboys (1991) last night on some Showtime mutation and it made me realize that this guy kind of disappeared.

I think that this Brooklyn-based actor first appeared on The Cosby Show in the late '80s and seemed like a promising new hip-hop generation actor. I seem to also remember that he did some stuff with MTV and maybe Yo! MTV Raps back in the day too. Hangin' with the Homeboyz was a good, low budget indie flick especially considering the fact that the genre of hip-hop influenced films not actually about rap music or breakdancing were very few and far between.

He had a lot of promise, but the downfall seemed to be his role in Cool Runnings (1993) as Sanka Coffee. Yep...
