“[Anthony] can be genial. He can be menacing. He can be sexy. He can do all of these things at the same time. I think he’s a very good actor, but I just don’t think that he’s had the film roles that he deserves. His success is limited by the imagination of the film industry. With really good actors, especially actors of color, the opportunities are fewer. Who will be brave enough to put him in a leading role instead of putting him in a supporting role?” - Boston Globe film critic and Pulitzer Prize winner Wesley Morris.
Happy 35th Birthday, Anthony Mackie (September 23, 1978)!
