John Amos of 'Good Times' Fame Admits He Was Not Surprised by Bill Cosby’s Conviction

Hollywood veteran, John Amos, gave his opinion on fellow star Bill Cosby's controversies and eventual conviction.

On Vlad TV, which airs on YouTube, Amos looked stylish in a brown leather jacket paired with a black t-shirt and a navy blue cap. He completed his look with his signature smile while going on to talk about working on the 1984 sitcom, "The Cosby Show."

"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was John's first major TV project, and he made sure to prove his worth on the show.

 

The "Coming to America" star said he had played Bill's doctor on the series, but even though they were both actors, they were not from the same social class at that time.

According to Amos, the now-convicted star had his social circle, which meant there needed to be a level of success before mingling with Cosby.

Cheat Sheet shares that Amos went on to talk about the sensitive topic of the star comedian's moral life. Amos explained that he remembered Bill to be highly ethical to the extent of prohibiting profanities on his show.

He even criticized the likes of Eddie Murphy for his use of words. After veering into the allegations of sexual assault and other social vices the star actor was convicted for, Amos found Bill Cosby's conduct to be "hypocritical."

When it comes to Hollywood experiences, John Amos has had his fair share and doesn't mind chipping in his opinion from time to time.
