An original tale served as the basis for the 1991 American action/crime film New Jack City, which was written by Thomas Lee Wright and Barry Michael Cooper and was helmed by Mario Van Peebles in his feature film debut. Wesley Snipes plays Nino Brown, a rising drug kingpin in New York City during the crack epidemic, in the March 8, 1991[2] release. Ice-T plays Scotty Appleton, a detective who swears to end Nino’s illegal behavior by working undercover for Nino’s group. In supporting roles, Allen Payne, Chris Rock, Judd Nelson, Bill Cobbs, and Van Peebles can be seen.

Pookie is Chris Rock.

Pookie the crackhead was portrayed by Chris Rock as an inside man. Rock’s career has soared in recent years, the complete opposite of the fictional Pookie. He most recently presided over the 2016 Academy Awards, and he made cameos on both “Saturday Night Live” and the popular Fox TV show “Empire.” Additionally, he was the director of the HBO films “Grown Ups,” “Everybody Hates Chris,” “Down To Earth,” “Nurse Betty,” and “Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo.” Additionally, in 2014, he co-wrote and directed the popular romantic comedy “Top Five.”

As Gerald “Gee Money” Wells, Allen Payne

For better or worse, the right-hand man of the drug lord, Allen Payne is well known for his depiction of Gerald “Gee Money” Wells. Following the movie, Payne was cast in a recurring role on “The Cosby Show” from 1990 to 1992. He subsequently moved on to movies like “Crossover,” “The Perfect Storm,” and “Vampire in Brooklyn.” In the TBS sitcom series “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” from 2006 to 2012, he also portrayed C.J. Payne, a dedicated husband and loving father. Before his recent involvement in the popular 2015 stage play “What Your Man Won’t Do,” Payne was rumored to have taken a break from performing.

As a detective, Ice-T S. A. Appleton

Undercover Detective Scotty Appleton, played by rapper Ice-T, is on the hunt for Nino Brown with a fury. The rapper carried on making music and making appearances in movies like “Ricochet,” “Trespass,” and “Surviving the Game” after the movie. Before his most recent program, “Ice Loves Coco,” which featured his wife Nicole ‘Coco’ Austin in 2011, he had previously dabbled in reality television with “Ice-T’s Rap School” in 2006. The celebrity now devotes the most of his time to being a father. Last November, Ice-T and his wife welcomed Chanel Marrow, their first child together.
