Palmer Williams Jr. is better known for his role as Floyd Jackson in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne,” and he has been a constant figure in the successful director and writer’s plays over the years. Palmer is also a dedicated and loving father, and he recently melted hearts with some photos of one of his sons.


Williams started his career in theater and later moved to the TV. He’s been part of several of Tyler Perry’s works like “The Marriage Counselor,” “Madea's Big Happy Family,” “Laugh to Keep from Crying,” “I Don't Want to Do Wrong” and “The Haves And The Have Nots.” 

He made his debut on TV by bringing Floyd Jackson to life in “House of Payne” and “Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor.” 


In 2015 he made an appearance on Steve Harvey’s “Family Feud” alongside his family. He’s happily married and is the father of three kids, but he has kept his family away from the spotlight, for the most part, avoiding to share their names on social media.

However, he does take lots of pictures with his kids to share with fans, and he’s constantly gushing about his beautiful daughter or his handsome sons, who look just like him. His eldest son recently turned 16, and Palmer was nostalgic about the boy growing up so fast.


He shared a throwback picture from when his son was a kid and wrote in his caption:

“Today, my first son is 16...How do you type tears? He was just in First grade last year!?!? I love you, Son. (He’s accepting money for my car insurance increase.)”


Palmer has also revealed that the boy is interested in filmmaking and producing, and he already did his first short film, “One Bad Choice,” for a video contest being held by the Operation Prevention program in order to raise awareness about the “growing epidemic of prescription opioid misuse and heroin use nationwide.”

His short film was chosen among the top 10 finalists, but the results will be revealed at the end of the month.


We’re sure Palmer is a proud father, and he’s supporting all of his kids to pursue their passion and dreams while he keeps on working on his. Good luck to William’s son on the video contents, hopefully, he’ll be one of the winners.
