Where Are They Now? The Cast of “Good Times”

- By

Moses Gunn

Mr. Gunn’s character of Carl Dixon is important to highlight because even though he only was in a few episodes, he played a pivotal role: he was Florida’s atheist husband near the end of the show. His character was diagnosed with cancer and because of it, tries to call of their engagement. But in the end, he pulls it together, and the two move to Arizona together. In real life, Moses Gunn was an award-winning stage actor, but after the show ended, he stuck to doing a lot of big TV work. He was on “Little House on the Prairie,” “Father Murphy,” “A Man Called Hawk,” and the TV movie, “House of Dies Drear” (love that movie!). His last real role was on the show, “Homicide: Life on the Street.” Gunn passed away in ’93 after having complications due to his asthma. He was 64.
