Legendary old school rapper Chuck D (Public Enemy) and his band rocked the Lincoln Center during the 20th Anniversary Celebration of Spike Lee’s 1989 film “Do The Right Thing”, last night in NYC. Public Enemy’s classic hit “Fight the Power” was featured on the Soundtrack.
In the film, actor John Turturro, on the left, played Pino, the son of the racist Italian pizzaria owner, and, of course Spike Lee directed and produced “Do The Right Thing”.
Rosie Perez played the Puerto Rican fireplug, Tina, who had everybody hot and bothered in the film, and in the theater.
We don’t recall actress Malinda Williams being in the film, but if she was she must have been a baby.
The lovely actress Eva Mendes attended a photocall for “Live!” in Rome, Italy yesterday.
