I don’t care that the real Richie Roberts has accuracy beefs with American Gangster. I’m glad Ridley Scott and Steve Zallian made stuff up…good! Russell Crowe plays the former detective in Scott’s film. Two days ago Roberts told N.Y. Post writer Susannah Cahalan that the film “whitewashes” the facts about former Harlem drug kingpin Frank Lucas and misrepresents aspects of Roberts’ life. Fine!
