Hal Williams

Highest Rated: 73% Hardcore (1979)

Lowest Rated: 41% Guess Who (2005)

Birthday: Dec 14, 1938

Birthplace: Columbus, Ohio, USA

Tall, mustachioed, highly likable African-American staple of 1970s and 80s television, most typically in roles as fairly average joes who explode at the crazed situations around them, only to prove to be warm, teddy bear types in the end. Williams is probably best known as the husband who must cope with an apartment building full of busybody women, especially his wife (played by Marla Gibbs), on the amusing NBC sitcom hit of the late 80s, "227."
