Actor. Television and motion picture comedic figure actor who is best remembered for portraying the beret-wearing suspender-clad teen named ‘Fred "Rerun" Stubbs' on the popular 1970's sitcom "What's Happening!!" (1976 to 1979). He was well in his twenties when he was cast as a high schooler on the sitcom. Prior to joining "What' Happening!!," he was a member of the pioneering break-dance troupe "The Lockers." In the mid-1980s, after heavily battling drugs and alcohol for several years, he abandoned drugs and received a brief moment of success. Never able to shake the role that made him famous, he reprised his ‘Rerun' self in 1985 for the updated "What's Happening!!" series, "What's Happening Now!" He soon quit in a contract dispute after the first season and the show ended in 1987. During this time period he became a ordained Baptist minister speaking at churches, schools and other groups, finally working as a minister in Madison, Alabama. He also was still dabbling in show business up until near his death. (bio by: Curtis Jackson)
