Bean, who is Jewish, acted in The Believer, and was a producer on Deep Cover and Noise. He was the director for The Believer and Noise.

Bean is also the inspiration for the protagonist of Noise. He was so tired of constant noise around him and his home in New York that he decided to take the law into his own hands. If a car alarm was going off and the owner of the vehicle didn't rectify the situation, Bean would break into the car to disable the offending car alarm. Bean was eventually arrested and jailed. He admits to doing it a few more times since.
