On “Sesame Street,” Roscoe Orman has played the part of “Gordon” for more than 30 years. And a better black role model would be hard to imagine.
But shortly before Mr. Orman got that gig, he starred as a badass pimp in the 1974 blaxploitation flick “Willie Dynamite.”
So let’s double up on some Roscoe Orman this mornin’, shall we? YouTube style.
In the “pimp council” scene, also keep a sharp eye out for a “Sanford & Son” co-star. (Not to mention Robert DoQui, a charter member of the Black C-Listers Hall of Fame.)
