Stan Shaw played "Big George" in Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), a none-too-surprising casting choice as the towering African American actor could never, ever play "little" anyone. Shaw's first film role was baseball player Esquire Joe, a Jackie Robinson type, in The Bingo Long Travelling All-Stars and Motor Kings (1976). Interestingly enough, when the TNT cable service produced The Court Martial of Jackie Robinson in 1990, Shaw was cast as yet another barrier-breaking sports icon, boxer Joe Louis. Stan Shaw's other TV credits include the part of lawyer Lafayette Tate on the 1983 series The Mississippi and guest-starring roles on such series as Murder, She Wrote, L.A. Law and Starsky and Hutch. Shaw's theater work includes an NAACP Image Award winning performance in Home.
