Tyrin Turner on Losing Boyz n the Hood Role, Does Tre Styles Crying Impression
If you’re a Menace II Society fan, then you know Tyrin Turner, who played Caine Lawson in the 1993 film. The actor sat down with DJ Vlad to talk about his upbringing in a Crip neighborhood in Los Angeles, losing his virginity at 12 to a 16-year-old girl, and how he got his start in Hollywood.
Though most kids wanted to play sports, video games, and other childish things, Turner said that he decided to give acting a chance while tagging along with his cousin to a workshop. Instantly, Turner said he enjoyed it and later down the road was chosen to appear in the extended version of Janet Jackson’s “Rythym Nation” music video before landing on the big screen next to Larenz Tate.
