The Potential Prisoners

The role of Lawrence is a small one. But in many ways his execution is the catalyst for the rest of the action in the film. Not to mention that there is a very powerful speech between Lawrence and his son Tyrell, where he tells him not to be like him because he is the the best of him. The role had to go to the right person. Hollywood greats like Don Cheadle and Jeffrey Wright were considered for the part. But ultimately, it went to Sean “Puff Daddy” (at the time), Combs.
