R. I. P. Yaphet Kotto.

Yaphet Kotto died on March 15, 2021.

With over 95 acting credits in television and film, his face was instantly recognizable to movie fans the world over.

I first saw him (and will ever remember him) as Kananga/Mr. Big in Live and Let Die (1973), then as Parker in Alien (1979), and as Agent Alonzo Mosely in Midnight Run (1988).

His range was impressive and he leaves behind a great legacy of work for us to enjoy.
