    Maybe I should post this in the film room, but I was young when this shyt dropped and really don't remember ray allen back then. How/why was he cast in this movie? Was dude that big? Or did he just have an interest in acting? Some connection to spike? I guess i never knew what led to him being in this movie. :jbhmm:

    He wasn't first choice or maybe not even second
    Kobe apparently was but declined
    Allen was a top 5 pick and was approached by Spike during a game

    Ray took 3 years of acting classes at UCONN, which holds one of the Top Film/Cinematic programs in the country. Spike Lee spoke there few times in the mid 90s

    The 1st option was Allen Iverson. Spike Lee even said it himself.
