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.
