Yaphet Kotto Week - Luchi De Jesus - Friday Foster

A few months back Manchester Morgue joined forces with several fellow blogs to honor Linda Blair with Blair Week - a week-long retrospective of her acting career. This week we're back to honor another legendary actor. His name is Yaphet Kotto.

Yaphet Kotto is someone many probably don't know by name, but most people have surely seen the man in one of the absolute shit-ton of films he's been in. Live and Let Die, Truck Turner, Alien, The Running Man, Freddy's Dead just to name a few. I'm sure pretty much everyone in the world has seen at least one of those movies, therefore everyone has seen Yaphet Kotto.

My contribution to Kotto Week is Luchi De Jesus' soundtrack from Friday Foster, the 1975 Arthur "Detroit 9000" Marks film featuring Pam Grier and the man of the week Yaphet Kotto.

I remember him.

I remember being scared of him in some movies, and wishing he was a long lost uncle in another.

He was one hell of an actor.

Kotto was awesome in this movie, the rest of it, with the exception of Julius Harris was pretty lackluster. I am looking forward to listening to this ST though.

You have to see him as super-smart pimp Harvard Blue in "Truck Turner" with Isaac Hayes. Amazing flick.
