Clifford Smith (born March 2, 1971), better known by his stage name Method Man, is an American rapper, record producer, and actor. He took his stage name from the 1979 film Method Man. He is perhaps best known as a member of the East Coast hip hop collective Wu-Tang Clan. He is also one half of the hip hop duo Method Man & Redman. In 1996, he won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By", with American R&B singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige.

Method Man has appeared in films such as Belly, How High, Garden State, The Wackness, Venom, Red Tails and The Cobbler. On television, he and frequent collaborator, fellow East Coast rapper Redman, co-starred on the short-lived Fox sitcom Method & Red. He also had a recurring role as Tug Daniels on HBO's Oz and Calvin "Cheese" Wagstaff on the HBO's The Wire.

In 2012, The Source placed him on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time.

Biography

He became engaged to his wife in 1999 and they married in 2001. He has three children: two sons (born in 1996 and 2001), and one daughter (born in 1997).


Legal troubles
On May 17, 2007, Method Man was arrested in New York City on marijuana charges. His SUV was pulled over near the Battery Tunnel toll booths for having an expired inspection sticker. An unidentified source said, "It was like something out of Cheech & Chong. He rolls down the window and the smoke would choke a horse." The arresting officer noticed two blunts and a plastic bag containing marijuana in plain view. Upon further inspection more marijuana was found under the driver's seat. Method Man was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, criminal possession of marijuana, operating a motor vehicle under the influence and driving an uninspected motor vehicle.
He reached a plea agreement to perform community service including rapping to young kids about the dangers of drugs.

On October 5, 2009, Method Man was arrested at his home in Staten Island for income tax violations. He was accused of failing to file income tax returns for the state of New York between 2004 and 2007 and owes nearly $33,000 in taxes. On June 28, 2010, Method Man pleaded guilty to tax evasion and was sentenced to a conditional discharge and paid a $106,000.

Le film montre sept journées de la vie de Paterson, chauffeur de bus vivant à Paterson, ville ouvrière du New Jersey. Il mène une vie réglée, paisible, harmonieuse. Il se lève sans réveille-matin entre 6 h 11 et 6 h 15, parfois à 6 h 28. Il conduit son bus, observant l'animation des rues, captant amusé les conversations de ses passagers… et voyant des jumeaux partout, depuis que sa compagne a rêvé qu'elle en attendait. Il déjeune sur un banc, face au pont Chasm et aux chutes de la rivière Passaic. Il profite de cette pause pour écrire des vers dans son carnet secret. Car il rédige des poèmes inspirés de sa vie et de ses rencontres. Il décèle de la poésie dans la routine, dans les rituels et les décors, dans la banalité de menus incidents, dans les paroles des humains qu'il côtoie. Ses vers libres chantent « les petits riens du quotidien, des choses ordinaires comme ces boîtes d'allumettes désuètes qui traînent sur le bar de sa cuisine. » Le soir, Paterson retrouve sa maison, sa compagne Laura. Il va promener leur bouledogue, s'arrête dans un bar où il croise des amis et boit une bière.

The film opens with a Spartan elder inspecting an ugly, talking baby (an ogre from Shrek the Third); it is abandoned to die for its deformity. A second baby, who is Vietnamese, is adopted by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Baby Leonidas is then inspected, having a six-pack, biceps and beard from birth. He is accepted as a Spartan and prepared for kinghood through his childhood training, from fighting his grandmother to enduring torture (a la Casino Royale). Leonidas (Sean Maguire) is then cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter and a gangsta penguin (Happy Feet). Returning a king for his inauguration wearing a penguin skin hat, Leonidas sees Margo (Carmen Electra) erotically dancing and asks her to marry him, to which she responds by giving him the combination to her chastity belt.
