Teddy Wilson

Biography: Not to be confused with jazz musician Teddy Wilson, African-American actor Theodore Wilson was busy in all aspects of acting. While he toted up significant stage and movie credits (The River Niger and Carny were among the stage performances, while his movies included A Fine Mess [1986] for Blake Edwards and Life Stinks [1991] for Mel Brooks), Wilson rose to prominence as a result of his television efforts. His earliest recurring TV role was as High Strung on Roll Out! (1973), a World War II sitcom about an all-black Army supply outfit. The following year, Wilson played mail carrier Earl Chambers on another black-oriented comedy weekly, That's My Mama, which lasted two seasons. Wilson then headed the cast of Sanford Arms (1977), NBC's feeble attempt to keep Sanford and Son going without its stars, Redd Foxx and Demond Wilson; the actor played Phil Wheeler, who tried to convert the Sanford junkyard into an office and the adjacent property into a hotel.

Having failed to replace Redd Foxx, Wilson subsequently found himself working for the ex-Fred Sanford; he succeeded Nathaniel Taylor in the role of Jim-Jam on the short-lived The Redd Foxx Show (1986). Theodore Wilson's final regular sitcom stint was on the syndicated You Can't Take It With You (1987), a comedy series based on the play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart; Wilson essayed the role of Mr. Pinner, an amalgam of two of the original play's characters, Mr. DePinna and Donald the handyman. Expand
