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

- By

Jimmie Walker

It’s kid, “dyno-MITE!!!” The lanky character of J.J. was probably what made the show so popular, what with his great sense of humor and signature phrase. I was just always blown away by the fact that they tried to make him out to be a sex symbol with all the girlfriends he had on the show and all the young gals trying to get at him. It could be just me, but homeboy was far from that. On top of that, he always had a wise crack for his sister Thelma, and he was a gifted painter. While Walker was on top of the world during the show’s run (even starring alongside Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby in the film Let’s Do It Again), afterwards, the well dried up. He did Airplane, the TV shows “At Ease,” and “Bustin Loose,” and even did some guest appearances on “Everybody Hates Chris.” He’s currently doing work on the stand-up comedy circuit.
