Mario Van Peebles

Last but certainly not least, we need to give much recognition to the always handsome and wonderfully talented Mario Van Peebles. Not only was “New Jack City” a breakout role for him, but he also notched a director credit for it. And for more than 40 years this man has been in the business, impeccably balancing an acting career with an enviable directing one. Much credit to you, sir.
