He said all the right things. He came out with a monologue to "Craig" of the Friday series, and warned us not to use the bathroom for about 35-45 minutes. Yeah - boy! I sure like his bit about MerLOT. I just recently started with wine tasting and he is right - it takes you to another level. After a few - you really get to tell who's faking it and who's real. Keep it up John, I hope to see you again real soon.
You probably remember John Witherspoon as Ice Cube's (Craig's) outrageously funny, dog-catching dad in New Line Cinema's smash urban trilogy Friday, Next Friday & Friday After Next, or as "Pops" on the long-running syndicated sitcom The Wayans Brothers. One thing's for sure... once you've seen Witherspoon you completely understand why he has earned the reputation as one of America's funniest dads.
Witherspoon has brought to life some of the most hilarious, unforgettable characters ever including, David Allen Grier's fashionably challenged, mushroom-wearing father in the romantic comedy Boomerang, and the quirky, diner-owning father "Pops" on The WB's The Wayans Brothers. His scene-stealing roles in Boomerang, Little Nicky, House Party, Vampire in Brooklyn, and I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, made him one of the most memorable funny men in America.
You've seen him in everything from popular music videos alongside Jay Z and Sugar Ray, to sitcoms opposite The Wayans Brothers and Saturday Night Live's Tracy Morgan, to blockbuster movies alongside Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chris Tucker and Ice Cube, amongst others. Not only does Witherspoon's work span over four decades to include blockbuster movies, hit-television shows, commercials, and top-rated music videos, but he's coined his own catch phrases, such as "Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!" and "You Gotta Co-ordinate!"
Witherspoon is also known for his voice role on the Cartoon Network's The Boondocks. He stars as the eccentric "Grandad" in the series based on the award winning and politically charged comic strip. Additionally, Witherspoon has lent his voice to other top-rated animated shows including, The Proud Family and Kim Possible, amongst others.
