Bill Nunn Laid To Rest After Losing Cancer Battle

Bill Nunn Laid To Rest After Losing Cancer Battle

Bill Nunn lost his battle with cancer.

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 Got Game,” has died.

His wife, Donna, said Nunn died recently at his home in Pittsburgh. He was 63 and had been battling cancer.

A longtime Pittsburgh resident and graduate of Morehouse College, Lee’s alma mater, 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.

Nunn appeared in films and TV programs, including “New Jack City,” ‘Sister Act’, Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy and “Sirens.”

Born William Goldwyn “Bill” Nunn III, on October 20, 1952, was laid to rest last weekend.
