RIP Bill Nunn (1953-2016) Who Played Robbie Robertson in the Original Spider-Man Trilogy
Character actor Bill Nunn, known for his roles in Do the Right Thing, Sister Act, Regarding Henry, School Daze, and to us CBMers as Robbie Robertson in the Original Spider-Man trilogy, has died aged 63.



Bill Nunn was a character actor who was known early in his career for playing the role of Radio Raheem in Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing. He and Lee then reunited for roles in films such as School Daze, Mo Better Blues and He Got Game.

He also appeared in films such as Sister Act, Regarding Henry, Cadillac Man, Canadian Bacon and many more.

Nunn later made an impact in the Original Spider-Man Trilogy as Robbie Robertson.

Spike Lee confirmed the actor has sadly died aged 63. RIP. Fight The Power.

Absolutely shocked.

His passing is so symbolic in this day & age considering the characters that he played on-screen; thinking of Radio Rahiem from 'Do The Right Thing'

horrible news.  I hadn't noticed him in anything in recent years but it was always good to see him in a role.
