For real though James Avery was the man. He was my favorite tv judge/uncle.

Sending condolences to the family of James Avery, “Uncle Phil” of the Fresh Prince. I’ll always remember how warm he was to me on set.

James Avery was a very funny and smart man. He did a cameo as a favor to me in WIWH and had the entire set rolling with laughter. RIP.
