    Not necessarily more famous but he has the talent to be a Pacino or a DeNiro.

    he was just as good an actor, if not better. My cousin Vinny showed he had range.

    did he just not want to be a celebrity? What happened?

    He had some flops when he was the main character and just said fukk Hollywood. Started rapping and disappeared. Only to come back here and there

    doesn't help that he semi retired in the late 90's.

    I love Pesci but dude was like the white version of Laurenz Tate minus the suave and smooth sense of his demeanor.

    I went my whole life not knowing Joe Pesci recorded and released a rap song.

    Thank you for this.

    Laurenz Tate is another one. Honestly I’d put him a step above Pesci that guy could’ve been a superstar, no idea what happened to him. You think all those rappers took his roles in the 90s?

    But I’m saying look at how good his acting is in this scene.

    craziest part is they say this was all ad libbed

    He been on shows like Power, but for the most part dude had this "real one" perspective to Hollywood. He did not play the game and it did not help that he had the same acting cadence as he did in various roles.

    One thing for sure, I would choose him easily for a Oscar breaking role over the usual suspects in Hollywood:francis:

    Larenz Tate is a BETTER one for this thread. He’s a legit talent that could do a broader set of roles.
