Top 3 Films: Bernie Mac

This one is a special memorial edition.

Bernie (Bernard Jeffrey McCullough) would have been 53 today. Rest in peace Bernie!!

Life (1999)

This film was directed by Ted Demme and starred Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence as prisoners in a 1930s era Mississippi prison farm.

Bernie plays a fellow prisoner named Jangle Leg.

Some other interesting names that pop up in this film are Ned Beatty, R. Lee Ermey and Heavy D.

Head of State (2003)

This film was directed by and stars Chris Rock as Mays Gilliam, a presidential candidate. Bernie plays Mays' brother and vice presidential candidate, Mitch.

Hilarious movie and I think probably my favorite Bernie Mac role.

Mr. 3000 (2004)

Bernie plays retired baseball player Stan Ross in this one.

Also starring in this movie are Angela Bassett, Paul Sorvino, and Chris Noth.
