Most people remember De’Aundre Bond’s face from movies like, Sunset Park and The Wood, but I remember this fella most from his role in Get on The Bus. You know, that one movie with all the black men trying to successfully make their way to the Million Man March in DC? In the movie, Bonds played “Smooth,” who was shackled to his father after getting arrested for theft. He had a mouth and a bad attitude on him, and spoke of his desire to do gangsta rap. But by the end of the movie, father and son had reconnected after years of stress and strife. Since doing movies like that, Bonds was supposed to play Antwone Fisher, but he unfortunately had to serve 11 years in prison after stabbing his aunt’s boyfriend who allegedly attacked him. But since he’s come out, Bonds has already started getting back into acting. He’ll appear in the movie, Gangster Squad, with Ryan Gosling, which comes out next year, and he hopes to start a clothing line and write a book and documentary about his life.
