Lonette McKee

A veteran actress in the game, Lonette McKee has been in a wide variety of movies, and many Spike Lee joints. Her biggest role for him, though, might have been when she played Wesley Snipe’s scorned wife, Drew Purify. A woman scarred by teasing because of her light skin, Purify didn’t appreciate when Snipes’ character of Flipper Purify cheated on her with a white woman. After giving such a great performance, McKee continued on in Spike Lee joints, including He Got Game and Malcolm X, and she also appeared in movies like Men of Honor, ATL and recently the movie, LUV. She had a guest role on “Third Watch,” and appeared on shows like, “Half & Half,” and “The Game.” She hopes to open a performing arts center in New York, and has also performed a one-woman memoir with music around the U.S.
