Veteran actor Peter Greene might best be known for playing villainous roles in various movies and TV shows, but the man is apparently a hero in real life. In a video recorded by underground rapper R.A. the Rugged Man, two women in New York City began brawling on the sidewalk in full view of NYPD traffic officers. It isn't exactly clear what started the fight in the clip, but according to R.A., the woman in the red shirt had assaulted another woman earlier and was spitting on others. Noticing that nobody else was going to step in and help stop the fight, none other than Peter Greene himself appeared to personally separate the two women.
Sternly telling the women to stop fighting, Greene places himself between them to finally separate the two. He finally manages to put an end to the brawl, though one spits at the other for good measure. With the scuffle over, Greene then angrily turns his attention to a nearby traffic officer who provided no assistance whatsoever. "What's the matter with you? You let them fight?" Greene shouts directly at the officer. He adds, "You're a grown man, what the f--k's wrong with you!" before leaving moments later with his bicycle. Truly, it's a moment that proves Greene is somehow even more badass in real life than he is in movies.
Greene is a veteran actor who's been in the business for a very long time, but he is particularly known for his memorable role in the Quentin Tarantino classic Pulp Fiction. In the movie, Greene plays a security guard named Zed who just might be the most dastardly person in a story filled with heinous criminals. After the sadistic sexual assault of crime boss Marcellus Wallace (Ving Rhames), Zed gets what's coming to him when he takes a shotgun blast to the crotch. "Zed's dead, baby, Zed's dead," Butch (Bruce Willis) memorably tells his girlfriend soon after when he picks her up on his motorcycle.
In addition to Pulp Fiction, Greene has appeared in dozens of movies and could often be seen playing many other dastardly roles throughout his career. In the '90s, he portrayed villains in movies like The Mask with Jim Carrey, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory with Steven Seagal, and Blue Streak with Martin Lawrence. More recently, he appeared in the Brad Furman movie City of Lies alongside Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker, which focused on the murder investigations of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. In the movie, he played Commander. He will next be featured in the crime biopic The Godmother, which tells the story of real-life drug lord Griselda Blanco.
When Greene is usually seen on screen, the actor plays a villain who gets his comeuppance at the hands of the heroes. In real life, however, the opposite can be said for Greene, who was the only person to step in when everyone else just stood by. This time, Greene is definitely the hero.
