Cargill & I continue exploring the work of our favorite black character actors. This week, we truck across 110th street to sing the praises of the great Yaphet Kotto. We discuss his work in blaxploitation, both as villain and hero, as well as his multifaceted turn as Bond’s foe in Live and Let Die.

Oh, and did you know Yaphet Kotto co-starred in a 1986 Walking Tall knockoff starring Gary Busey? Eye of the Tiger, baby. Eye of the Tiger!

Step up your game, just like Mr. Kotto, and download this episode of Junkfood Cinema.
