Basketball Diaries, The Easter Egg - A Junkie's Fantasy

In this hard hitting flick that shows the street life of a young heroin addict there is a cameo by rocker/poet/author of "Diaries"; the incomparable "Catholic Boy" Jim Carrol.
In the park on a bench midway through the movie an old ex-junkie talks to the young Jim Carrol(Leonardo DiCaprio) about a drug dream he had when attending a Catholic Mass. His autobiography should convince all of us that heroin is a death sentence.

There are also several other characters from the book that have been included in the movie. Other than Jim Carroll as Frankie Pinewater, there is also JuJu Johnson, the world's fattest junkie, according to Carroll. Check the credits for other names that will really jump out at you if you're familiar with the book.
