Hollywood Actor and Icon John Witherspoon Died at age 77




The most memorable line I will ever remember John Witherspoon saying in The Wayans Brothers.  He was always a comedian making every line he had in movies or TV shows worth your laughs! It has been reported by Dateline that Witherspoon died in his home in Sherman Oaks.  He will always be remembered from the Friday Franchise playing Ice Cube’s dad known as Mr. Jones, Pops in The Wayans Brothers and Robert Freeman (grandad) in The Boondocks. And let’s not forget his appearance in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air playing Smith’s girlfriend Lisa’s father. 


Witherspoon will be forever missed and his legacy will always be remembered. His career got started as a stand-up comedian on the Richard Pryor show and everything else was history.  His last final project was to be on the final Friday movie which is “Last Friday”
