                                                      1. Mace- its what made me love him as an actor
                                                      2. Coach Carter- proves his acting skills
                                                      3. Darius Kinkaid- done know why but just love hearing him say “motha fucka”
                                                      4. Jules- gotta love him and the movie
                                                      5. Fury- even though Fury is suppose to be white, SLJ just fit the role
