Laurence Fisburne followed in the massive foot steps of James Earl Jones, in his majestic portrayal of Troy Maxson, the troubled patriarch in August Wilson's Fences at the Pasadena Playhouse. Teaming up with his co-star, Angela Bassett (What's Love Got to Do With it?) Fishburne gives life to this powerful, but flawed character riddled with contradictions. Did you know that Bassett's husband, Courtney B. Vance, also portrayed Troy on Broadway? She and Vance recently wrote a book entitle, Friends A love Story to be released in January 2007.
