Best known as the father who loves to coordinate, John Witherspoon has roots deeply embedded in comedy. From his time alongside Richard Pryor when he had his NBC TV series to Kid ‘n Play in House Party, Witherspoon has made audiences laughed for the latter part of four decades. In Friday, he plays Craig’s dog catching, bathroom stinking father who urges his son to “be a man” in the final act of the film. Since the popularity of the franchises died down, Witherspoon kept himself active by performing stand up on the road at venues and colleges, and starred alongside fellow Friday cast mate Regina King on Aaron McGruder’s The Boondocks animated series. Up next for him is a starring role in Aaron McGruder‘s Black Jesus television series.

    Whoever wrote this need to remove it. How do you write an article on a classic movie and don’t even know the names of the actors/actresses with incorrect pictures? Epic fail!!!!

    • I wrote this article and it seems as if you possibly have Mr. (in your case Ms.) Magoo syndrome. To paraphrase Jay Z, do you read through these stories, or just skew through it?
