I know I wasn’t the only person who was a huge fan of “New York Undercover” back in the day! Another Thursday night staple thanks to FOX, not only did I get to watch a version of “Law & Order” (minus the “Law” part) that I could relate to, but I got to see up and coming black actors get their start, and some of my favorite musicians from the ’90s do their thing (thanks to the lounge “Natalies” that was a staple at the end of every episode). The music was dope, the clothing was dope, and most of all, the show was dope. Make that amazing. It lost its heat around the last few seasons (especially after they got rid of Torres), but anytime I can catch it on Centric, I sit down and relive the ’90s. Wondering what some of our favorite characters from the show are doing and looking like now? We’ve got a few for you. Check it out, and again, be ready to click.
Yoba was the very fine, very smooth and very smart Det. J.C. Williams. He was best friends with Torres, father to “G,” and a lover of the ladies. He brought the heat and the eye candy on “New York Undercover,” and when it was over, Yoba wound up doing a little bit of everything. For instance, he did some singing (and had a lead role) in the David E. Talbert play, “His Woman, His Wife,” but he also kept on doing a lot of TV work. He had a guest role on “Arrested Development,” showed up on a series called “Bull,” had a recurring role as Joan’s love interest, Brock, on “Girlfriends,” and most recently starred in the Syphy series “Alphas.” You could also peep him in movies like Why Did I Get Married (and the sequel), Feel the Noise, and he just finished two new movies: Recalled and Caught on Tape. Yoba once said he has hopes to revive the TV series into a present-day version.
