On New Years Eve, actor James Avery passed away at the age of 68 due to complications from open heart surgery. Best known as Uncle Phil on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, he was a lifelong actor appearing in dozens and dozens of TV shows and movies.
I even literally bumped into him at Southern Connecticut State University when he was there to produce some theatrical show. Actor, theatre man, judge. He could do it all.
But, this was by far my favorite Uncle Phil moment from the iconic show. Godspeed, Judge Banks.
