PLAYED BY: Laurence Fishburne
HIS SITUATION: When 10-year-old Tré, his son with his now-estranged wife, gets into some trouble at school, “Furious” Styles agrees to to let the boy stay with him in his modest home in South Central Los Angeles.
PARENTING TRAIT WE ADMIRE:Responsibility. Watching so many lives wasted in his crime-ridden neighborhood, Furious sticks by his belief that strong values can transform troubled communities — and an impressionable young son.
HIS ON-THE-MONEY PHILOSOPHY ON THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF BEING A FATHER: “Any fool with a d**k can make a baby, but only a real man can raise his children.”
