I was watching Fresh Prince...


 I was watching Fresh Prince...
topic by more_fya - 03-04-2008, 11:32 PM - Boxden > The TV and Movie Spot


and I was wondering if anybody noticed that they kept bringing in the same actors/actresses but that they played different characters. For example:



Lisa Wilkes & Claudia - Nia Long
Fred from the pool hall & Nelson, Will's barber - Hugh Dane
Dee Dee & Marissa Redman - Queen Latifah
Lindsey Simon & Lisa (girl at party having convo with Hilary and doctor from clinic) - Michole White
Judge Robertson & George Jefferson - Sherman Hemsley
Prof. Jeremy Mansfield & Werner (Hilary's talk show producer) - Jim Meskimen


Not a big thing. It wasn't done with every guest actor/actress. There was tons more but mostly just smaller roles. I just found it funny.

They do this with a lot of shows, and yes, I've noticed it on Fresh Prince too.

and dont be surprised if they work on the show behind the scenes, as part of the studio staff.

I could just be crazy but in this episode was there a part where he was making fun of Will for trying to make the flambé(sp)? I swear the first time I saw this episode there was some dialogue that went something like:

Fireman: So how did the kitchen set on fire?
Will: I was trying to make the flambé!
Fireman: (laughing) Flambé?! Black folks don't cook no flambé!

It wasn't exactly like that but I swear there was a scene resembling this and then it was taken out in all future airings. If not I don't know why I would think there was a scene like this. Like I said I could just be crazy. Did anybody else ever see this?

^I think the two Lisa's were actually two different characters, not just one character played by two different people. 'Cause remember the one Lisa's dad was John Witherspoon and fiancé Lisa's dad was John Amos.

they do the same voices on the simpsons too... with some of the fill-in characters, you can recognize their voice.
