Method Man cast as Rasta drug dealer!
Method Man stars as a Rasta Drug Dealer in a new Hollywood film 'The Wackness' which was on the bill at Sundance Film Festival, this is what he had to say:
"It's cool as shit, this [guy] feels his life is wack. The lead character is played by Josh Peck, and it's the story of a high school student [who's] about to graduate — that's addicted to pot. His psychiatrist is also a drug addict — that's played by Ben Kingsley. Peck falls in love with Ben Kingsley's daughter, who's also a drug addict. Peck comes for advice from his supplier, who is me. I play a Rastafarian drug dealer. I really transformed. ... I hired my own coach. ... The dialogue they had was so Hollywood Jamaican, it was ridiculous. The person I worked with went in and wrote it over."
Personally i hate to see Rasta's being cast as drug dealers, it's giving Rasta's a bad name that they can do without, it's just this kind of thing that causes the bad reputaion that the media sometimes gives them.
