Peaceful Journey, Percy Rodriquez


He was one of those dudes that you always saw, and thought was dignified and talented, but never really knew the name. Now you do...he passed away this past week. He was truly one of our community's breakthrough black actors that did not step into the mold that was thrust upon us in Hollywood.

RIP.

Do you recall the names of some of his movies/tv shows? I can't quite place him.

I know that he played Flordas rich cousin on an episode of Good Times and a bunch of other old school stuff but I haven't seen him lately. I like him, he's 'stately'.

When I posted this I thought: Thembi would know the Good Times episode...and lo and behold, haha :-) He was in a TON of classic TV--Wild Wild West, Star Trek, Mannix, Route 66, Payton Place (as a docter in the 60's!) Banacek (one of my personal faves)The Man From U.N.C.L.E. The Jeffersons, the list goes on.
