Question: What movie starred Marc Singer as a warrior who communicated with animals?

Last Question: In Fast Times at Ridgemont High, who played football player “Charles Jefferson”?

Answer: Forest Whitaker

Forest Whitaker was in one of the best scenes of the movie as he played a very angry Charles Jefferson. He was in love with his Trans-Am. Unfortunately, the car got destroyed when when Spicoli (Sean Penn) and company get high and take a joyride in it. To get away with it, they write the name of the next high school football opponent on the car and Jefferson destroys them in the game as revenge. The other team had no clue what was going on, and they were scared to death!

Whitaker won an Academy Award for his performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland.

I never saw that movie, but if you want to see an incredible performance, check him out as Jon Kavanaugh in season 5 of The Shield. He was an intense internal affairs officer determined to take down Detective Vic Mackey and the Strike Team.
