Obscure Movie Characters We Like: Mr. Jackson in Boomerang


OK, first of all, anyone who knows who John Witherspoon can understand that this guy is awesome.  Any time you need someone to play the old, perverted, funny, angry older black guy, Witherspoon is your man to call.  It’s just that simple.

There’s perhaps no better instance of when he nailed this role than when he played David Alan Grier’s character’s father, Mr. Jackson, in the movie Boomerang.  “Bang Bang! Bang Bang!”

The whole “you’ve got to coordinate” scene is incredible.  P.S. I think this character and the one he plays in the movie House Party might be exactly the same.

Here’s to you Mr. Jackson.

The “coordinate” scene right after the jump:



Gerard!  Did you see what your father???….. Awesome.
