Dick Anthony Williams Died Unknown, SAMUEL L. JACKSON has led tributes to actor DICK ANTHONY WILLIAMS, who died at the age of 73 last week (15Feb12).
Williams appeared in several movies, including Edward Scissorhands, The Jerk and Spike Lee’s drama Mo’ Better Blues.
He also starred in a string of Broadway shows, and his turn in What the Wine-Sellers Buy won him the 1974 Drama Desk Award, but he will perhaps be best remembered for his role as ‘pretty Tony’ in 1973 blaxploitation film The Mack.
In a post on Twitter.com, Jackson writes, “RIP, Dick Anthony Williams! Truly an Acting MUTTUHF**KUH! Pretty Tony, to those who know!”
The Wire star Wendell Pierce adds, “An actor who embodied what a journeyman artist is: persistent, innovative, and transcendent, Dick Anthony Williams has died. RIP.”
Williams’ cause of death is unknown as WENN went to press.
