Nollywood actor Jim Iyke’s Hollywood dad Revealed!

I’m sure just like me, it’s been a while since you last saw veteran Hollywood actor, Bill Duke on screen so you probably haven’t seen the striking resemblance between him and Nollywoood bad boy, Jim Iyke. But check these photos out and see if you agree that the two look alike.

With an imposing figure standing at 6 ft 4½ in, the always clean-shaven Bill Dukefirst became a familiar face to moviegoers around the world in Car Wash (1976) where he portrayed a fierce young Black Muslim revolutionary. He was also in American Gigolo (1980) where he played a gay pimp.

Duke acted alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando and Predator and played a corrupt FBI agent in the Mel Gibson movie Bird on a Wire, and a corrupt policeman in another Mel Gibson film, Payback.

Duke began directing theatrical films in the 1990s with crime dramas A Rage in Harlem (1991), Deep Cover (1992) and Hoodlum (1997). He also directed TheCemetery Club (1993) and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (1993), starring Whoopi Goldberg.
