Performers, Cast and Crew:
An all-star cast is featured in this prequel of CARLITO'S WAY, originally a Brian dePalma film starring Sean Penn and Al Pacino. Set in Spanish Harlem, this version stars Jay Hernandez, in a star-making performance, as Carlito, who is on a comet-like ascent to the top of a successful crime ring. But being a kingpin takes a lot of support and the loyalty of a posse of complicated and violent friends, played by seasoned actors Mario Van Peebles, Luis Guzman, and the multi-talented P.Diddy, who proved his fine acting chops in the Broadway play, A RAISIN IN THE SUN.
