Actor John Amos showed off his only son, K.C Amos, in a new Instagram video as the two bonded over an old school jam. Fans wasted no time pointing out the resemblance between the pair.
“Good Times” star, John Amos, and his son, KC Amos, are enjoying the holidays in a big way. The 81-year-old Hollywood legend shared a rare video of himself and his son, enjoying a special moment together.
The resemblance between the two men was uncanny, as fans pointed out via comments, with most referring to the twosome as “twins.”
JOHN AND KC’S TWINNING MOMENT
The video featured the father-son pair seated side by side in the front seats of a car, each rocking a hat and a hoodie. John accompanied the video with a caption which read:
“KC and I are at it again on @tiktok! -J.A. #fatherandson #happyholidays.”
In the TikTok video, KC could be seen moving to the beat as the older man chorused the lyrics of “Rainy Day In Georgia” by Brook Benton, which was playing in the background.
FANS GUSH ABOUT THEIR RESEMBLANCE
Following the post, fans took to the comment section to gush about the shared physical features between John and his son. One fan noted that KC looked just like his father, while another agreed, adding a birthday wish.
John starred in the '70s sitcom “Good Times” for three seasons before his character was killed off unexpectedly.
Another commenter complimented how handsome the “clones” looked, while most concluded that the father and son were real “twins.”
BEING K.C’S HERO
Aside from their resemblance, the two have other shared attributes, including their passion for the arts. However, KC’s interest lies behind the cameras. He acknowledged his dad as his inspiration in an emotional Father’s Day tribute, saying:
“He taught me to discover my passion, develop it, and give it back in a way that will hopefully make a difference to the lives of others.”
The producer also touched on some of John’s iconic works over the years, including his stint on “Good Times” as the Evans family patriarch.
JOHN AMOS ON “GOOD TIMES”
John starred in the 70s sitcom “Good Times” for three seasons before his character, James Evans, was killed off unexpectedly. The actor revealed in a later interview that the showrunners killed off his character due to some differences in opinions.
Fans received another shock of a lifetime in 2019 when the actor returned to the series for the "Live in Front of the Studio Audience" reboot. However, rather than reprise his role as James, the actor played the snide Alderman Davis.
Notwithstanding the switch in characters, viewers were glad to relive the old times once again, with the icon among the cast. Barely a year later, John returned to another beloved movie.
This time reprising his role as Cleo McDowell in “Coming 2 America.” It appears age is only a number for John Amos, who continues to win hearts with some of the greatest television performances even at 81.
