Huge thank you to the legendary and iconic actor John Amos for coming on my show for an interview! John Amos talked about his early life of growing up in East Orange, New Jersey, attending Colorado State University, and his involvement in both the NFL & boxing. He got into getting into the acting show business, starting out as Gordy Howard on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, his most memorable moments on Good Times as James Evans, and landing the role of Kunta Kinte in the hit series Roots. He discussed his true number one passion of being a live performer and experience of being on Broadway. He got into Coming to America, working with Eddie Murphy, and reprising his role as Cleo McDowell in Coming 2 America. He recently stared in a film called Because of Charley and talked about how the film was made during the pandemic. He also created a children's book that released in 2017 called A World Without Color. He ended the show talking about his role in George A Romero's Two Evil Eyes and what it was like working with one of the greatest horror movie creators of all time. He has a lot on the way that he is working on, especially with his son K.C. Amos. Stay tuned! Thank you John Amos for all that you have done and do for TV & Film!
