▴ Clifton Collins Jr is an actor whos appeared in Pacific Rim, Transcendence, Traffic, and other films, including the upcoming Triple Nine.IntroductionOne hot day in August, there was a prison riot at the California Institution for Men in Chino I was halfway through a six year sentence, the father of young children, and I wanted nothing to do with extending my time in that hellhole But the race riot that unfolded that night was inescapable.I was with a group of Southern California Hispanics, outnumbered and trapped in the last surviving dorm Fires raged all around us More than one hundred angry men were doing everything possible to break down a secured door Their only desire was to maim or preferably kill us We were pretty much doomedwe knew it, they knew it The only thing I had left in that shithole worth fighting for were the pictures of my kids taped to my locker shelf So we prepared ourselves for the massacre, lacing up and wrapping towels around our necks to protect our jugulars There were two Christian brothers in our dorm just praying It was pretty grim.And then, as the door began to give way and the rioting inmates were just about to storm in, two older guys ran to our aid They were OGsOriginal Gang members of the Cripsand they stood between us and the bloodthirsty attackers.They must have argued for two hours, until finally the rioting inmates backed down The lines of race and gang affiliation are deeper in prison than anywhere else, so the fact that these African American guys defended usHispanicsagainst their own brothers is practically unheard of.Since fires were still raging, and the door to our dorm was now jammed, we and our enemies were both trapped They were outside in the prison yard, freezing and huddled up I noticed one of the OG men passing them the little bit of food he had, from his locker At that moment I felt it only right to try to return a small portion of a big favor I gathered all the homies and we began to cook all our Ramen and commissary We made huge spreads, jugs of coffee, and snacks We shoved all the blankets and mattresses we could fit through the door they had once attempted to break down to kill us Most of them were just kids, barely in their twenties, living and following the same lies we were.Shortly after this, I received a visit from my childhood friend Clifton Growing up in the mean streets of West L.A., who would have thought that many years later wed still be friends We came from the same housing projects, but grew up in different worlds Cliff was never deep in the game like many others, but he was always in the mix Squabbling, getting shot at, holding his own in street fights like the rest of us Then hed bounce the spot and go to an audition Id get snatched from the spot and go to juvenile hall This went on for many yearscasting calls for him, county jails for me movie deals for him, state and federal prisons for me.Through it all, we maintained our friendship through letters, phone calls, and visits, always holding the dream that one day wed collaborate on something I pitched this idea to Cliff when he visited me after the riot and now its a book in your hands Take it from someone who knows what hes talking aboutyou can change your life from wherever you are right now.Gustavo Goose AlvarezOn August 8, 2009, I was in Iowa finishing up a heavy scene for a film I was doing with Adrian Brody and Forrest Whitaker called The Experiment Its loosely based on Philip Zimbardos Stanford prison experiment of 1971, in which regular citizens were assigned the roles of guards and prisoners for a psychological studyto disastrous effect.This particular night was the scene of the big uprising, the convicts against the newly corrupt guards who had become sadistic Shooting this scene was unusually tense because the director had taken off for a week and we were left to shoot, act, and riot on our own There were some injuries, but we dealt with them and lived to tell the story.The following morning I got the news that while I was shooting a riot scene in a movie, my boy Goose was fighting for his very life I felt sick and wished I could have been there to get his back, as he has always had mine The odds have never been in his favor, but somehow he has always managed to prevail I hoped this was one of those times.Never getting a straight story from news outlets, I did everything I could to get the real story I took to Twitter and asked hood friends who lived in the area I heard grisly details about point blank shootings and convicts getting sliced open with makeshift swords of broken windows, but no Goose.Just when I feared the worst, I got news that he was all right We got on the phone and I made plans to go out and see him He told me of the event that occurreda meal shared rather than bodies destroyed I could hear the amazement and pride in his voice Everything was going to be all right.Clifton Collins Jr. Prison Ramen Recipes and
