Yaphet Kotto: James Bond villain and Alien actor dies at 81

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-56412867

His TV career also included roles in the A-Team and Law and Order, and he played Lieutenant Al Giardello in seven series of the gritty Homicide: Life on the Street, for which he also worked as a scriptwriter.

I've always enjoyed his work, especially on Homicide, Life on the Street. Shalom "G" :(

Live and Let Die deserves a mention, too. And wasn't he in Across 110th Street? That was a good one.

Wasn't he the FBI agent in Midnight Run? I still enjoy watching that one every once in a while.
Pretty decent actor.

Bone was the only flick of his that I could find of his on YouTube the other day ... I would've preferred a different ending but that's me.

Foster Grants?

Great movie!

On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.
