Bill Duke spoke about working with Mel Gibson on Bird on a Wire and Payback, and thinking that he was one of the nicest, most respectful actors he’s ever worked with. However, when Gibson’s racist and anti-Semitic remarks went public, Duke felt like Gibson’s words were “deplorable.” He went on to speak about drugs and alcohol taking people to a different place, but Duke maintained that he only had positive interactions with Mel Gibson.

Bill Duke spoke about working with 50 Cent in the past, and said that he thinks the rapper is a great lyricist and an incredible businessman. He noted that they spoke about business while on the set of ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and that he asked the rapper questions about his business acumen as well.

From there, Duke spoke about being in one of the ‘X-Men’ films, saying it was an incredible experience but learned a lot from being in the movie. He said he never worked with a green screen before that point, saying he had to respond as an actor to things that were not there.
