In addition to Live And Let Die, Yaphet Kotto appeared in nearly a hundred other projects. He appeared in one off episodes as major characters in a slew of classic television shows including Murder, She Wrote, Fantasy Island, The A-Team, Hill Street Blues, Perry Mason and more. He eventually settled into a regular key role on Homicide: Life On The Street throughout the mid to late 90s. Between 1993 and 2000, he appeared in 122 episodes not including the movie and a crossover episode where he appeared as Al Giardello on Law & Order.
Our thoughts go out to Kotto’s wife, as well as his six children during this difficult time. His work will be fondly remembered and enjoyed for a very long time.
