John Amos

Remember him? He played James Evans on Good Times.

It shocked me to find out there are gay rumors about him. He was my first crush when I was just a little tyke. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine him gay.

I mean, he signed with the Denver Broncos and he was a Golden Gloves Boxing champ. He just seems so straight. NTM, he has two kids.

So, where do the gay rumors come from? Is he really gay?

Another one is Earl Holliman. Is he really gay?

Oh god, I used to imagine my head being squeezed by John's big old thighs.

Earl Holliman, not so much.

by Anonymousreply 105/12/2012

Well, Earl Holliman, like him or not, actually is gay.

by Anonymousreply 205/12/2012

He tried to make a play for Isabel Sanford but she refused him. Then he went after Mary Tyler Moore and Mary said, he had a baboon nose. So then he filed a racist lawsuit against Moore, who is notoriously anti-African American.

That's why Norman Lear gave him his own show with Ester Rolle, because Lear and Moore's husband, Grant Tinker (known as Tinker Bell in Hollywood) were doing the squat and gobble behind their wives backs.

Excuse me, but who in their right mind would make a play for Isabel Sanford?

Stop trying to make Isabel Sanford the Kevin Bacon of 70s sitcoms!

John Amos always had the sexiest ears.

According to DL he has been in a long time relationship with some blond, twink, soap opera actor.

Best ass on TV in those tan corderoy pants- and a hell of a good actor-ugly but hot at the same time and I'm not into chocolate

I have always though John AMos was smoking hot. I would love to have seen him naked. You know it's thick.

Saw the cover of the National Enquirer today at the checkout stand. The headline was about guys John Travolta has nailed. There were only a few surprises, but among them was Robert Urich, who I've always had the hots for since I was a tween. Not sure if I believe it, but after getting sued repeatedly, the Enquirer is supposedly accurate now. But maybe they can still spin tales about dead people?

Was Isabel Sanford really gay?

I remember seeing him on some sketch show or variety show and he did some bit (Christ, I sound like Sammy Maudlin) where he flexed his big, beautiful bicep and that was it for me.

Libel doesn't apply to dead people. Hence Darwin Porter's "literary" output.

I don't think he is homosexual in real life, but he played one on television. On "Two Men and a Half" to be more precise.

I saw him on TV when they did Roots last week. His Kunta Kinte ran around with no shirt on. He was a rippling muscled buck.

John Amos is not gay. It was silver-dollar-nipple actor John ENOS who's apparently gay or bi and discovered John Paul Seponski. People keep getting these two actors confused. It's wrong, and I refuse to lose any more sleep over it. John Amos is as gay as his dick is long.

I had a MAJOR hottie attack over the seldom-seen dad on "What's Happening!" He was a total fox, while Mama weighed like 300 lbs.

Indeed he was! And I love how he's obviously freeballing in the pic I posted.

As for Amos, I don't see how he couldn't do it for anyone when he was on Good Times. That big, muscular body, ass and constant VPL was enough to make a straight man do a double take.

MTM was married to Grant Tinker during the time her show was in production. Though I think she's somewhat C-O-L-D, I've never heard nor read a thing about her screwing around nor have I read one thing about her having any type of racist views. There is also NOTHING about her having said any such thing about John Amos to be found by searching GOOGLE, Yahoo, DogPILE except to link back to the post's comment here on

[R60], with all due respect, pal, I do not believe that. I believe that John, as we all are, in created in God's Image. Just because one person has the different nose structure does not make him or her less human than you.

Given the opportunity Amos was a pretty fine actor. It's a shame his obituary will start by mentioning his years as second banana on Good Times.

One of my favorite scenes from the entire run of The West Wing. John Amos as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs talking to the White House Chief of Staff. I've been around a few admirals. He nails it.

John Amos is addicted to pot. I was at an interview he did. He kept stopping to go smoke, and his eyes became very bloodshot. He's just gross these days.

Why would you be at "an interview he did?"

As for Amos, well, he's a good actor. He was the best actor on Good Times. He was uniquely good-looking. And sexy! I never heard any gay rumors about him, although no doubt there are a lot of Dataloungers who WISH he was gay.

I remember Clifton Davis from that time period more. He was so hot; beautiful smile, and a shirt unbuttoned to his abs when he appeared on the Match Game. I was affixed in order to catch a glimpse of a nipple, but he never delivered. I busted a nut, many times, thinking of him while I went through puberty.

by Anonymousreply 8401/26/2016

He has such a friendly persona, a gentle giant, perfect to play Kunta as a highly sympathetic protagonist. He said it was his dream role, and he might still consider it his proudest achievement. Also loved Esther Rolle and that they both openly hated Jimmy Walker (now a far-right cretin.) Didn't both of them quit the show because of him? John and Esther were both cool and talented actors, Walker's a creep.

Clifton Davis had scars on his chest from open heart surgery, so I doubt if he would wear a shirt unbuttoned to the navel on television.

Michael Jackson had a major crush on Clifton way back when . . . don't know if anything ever transpired between them.

As for Robert Urich . . . wasn't he once involved with Burt Reynolds?

He was Faye Dunaway's hand picked choice to play her husband on her ill fated sitcom.

Earl Holliman was in that teenage runaway movie Alexander: The Other Side of Dawn.

That was a really early gay content film. I didn't know he was gay (or much about him at all really.) That was a pretty bold/move for a gay man to be in a film like that at that time. Good for him.
