Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” was released earlier this summer on Netflix to acclaim from critics and then shortly afterward, it only grew in public consciousness due to the lasting power of the film’s story, the summer’s Black Lives Matter movement and the tragic death of one of the film’s stars, Chadwick Boseman. Delroy Lindo, the film’s lead, has had a career that has lasted for nearly fifty years and he received the highest reviews of his career for his tormented portrayal of the Donald Trump supporting, PTSD suffering, Vietnam war veteran, Paul. Delroy was kind enough to take a few moments to talk about the recognition he has received so far for the film, his experience reuniting with director Spike Lee, working with Chadwick Boseman in a scene that has taken on new meaning since the actor’s untimely death and more!
