John Henton

There was something about Overton Wakefield Jones, aka, Obie, that reminded me something of a funny fool, but he had such a sweet and enduring personality–and the man wouldn’t rest until he fixed your broke, busted and disgusted appliances.  On the show he was Kyle’s roommate, Synclaire’s boo, and the brownstone handyman. In real life, Henton tried to keep the laughs going, appearing on shows like The Hughleys as D.L.’s best friend. But in 2000, Henton was in a tragic car accident that shattered his legs, tore up his stomach, broke some teeth and messed up his eye socket. But he hasn’t let that slow him down, and he says he has no memory of the accident. He finished up work on The Hughleys (only missing four shows after the accident), and made some guest appearances on shows like One on One, The Parkers, and Hannah Montana.
