23. Tommy Bundy, Belly (1998)
Portrayed by: DMX
Belly won’t be replacing Scarface as the quintessential drug dealer movie of a generation, but director Hype Williams did have a stroke of genius when he cast DMX as Tommy “Buns” Bundy. Despite a lack of acting experience, he did an admirable job in the drug-dealing role. He was even in a few genuinely terrifying scenes where his short temper and intimidation skills were really on display.
He’s not the refined type of drug dealer you might see in most movies. Tommy Bundy brings the down-home seediness to the role that is more reminiscent of the real world. Skip the pretenses and just give us the real deal, even if it is a little less refined.
