The Laurence Olivier of Jamaican drug overlords

"When Basil Wallace stepped on screen as crazy rasta 'Screwface', my life was forever altered. Here was a villain not to be fucked with – a bug-eyed scenery masticator in the glorious tradition of old. The misguided fools in Hollywood may have proclaimed 'Marked for Death' a Steven Seagal picture, but it was the Basil Wallace show every inch of the way. Shining ten times brighter than any other actor on screen, Basil was incandescent as Seagal's counterpart. In short, he was the Laurence Olivier of Jamaican drug overlords."
