I was truly shocked when I heard about the passing of John Witherspoon this morning. This man was one of the most sought after comedic actors in Hollywood. This is proven by the numerous movies and TV shows that he appeared in. He was working on a reboot of the Boondocks in which he did the voice of Granddad. He was also slated to reprise his role as Craig's father in a new production of the film Friday. I was lucky enough to meet him several years ago when he did a stand up gig at the Funny Bone in Destiny USA. He stopped by the Power 620 studio ahead of that appearance and here's our conversation.
Here's a video that John posted just a few days ago before his untimely passing.
