Yaphet Kotto has an eery ability to appear in everything I hold dear. First and foremost, Homicide : Life on the Streets - the best television show ever created. Fuck a “Wire”.
Second; Arnold’s, by far, best movie “The Running Man”. A movie in which a spandex clad Yaphet unfortunately faces an early curtain to a fat japanese dude on skates. Which is ridiculous. Everyone knows that the japs suck at hockey.
Bonus: The first Alien-movie. He’s in Live and Let Die. Not a bad movie, considering it’s a Roger Moore-vehicle. On a sidenote it also stars a young Jane Seymour. That, in itself, is win.
