Steely-eyed, incisive African American character actor Julius W. Harris made his first movie appearance in 1964's Nothing But a Man. Harris' subsequent screen roles included the menacing Tee Hee in the 1973 James Bond entry Live and Let Die and African premiere Longo in First Family (1980), who in the film's funniest scene negotiates a slave-trade operation with American President Bob Newhart. On TV, Harris starred in the Flipper-like syndicated series Salty (1974). One of Julius W. Harris' most memorable TV portrayals was as Ugandan President Idi Amin (substituting for Godfrey Cambridge, who died during production) in the feature-length Victory at Entebbe (1976).
