Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs played Sweathog Freddie "Boom Boom" Washington on the '70s TV series "Welcome Back Kotter." Guess what he looks like now!

Mista Kott-Tair!!

I wish they would do a "class reunion" show.

We used to sit around for hours coming up with "up your nose" jokes.

I think he was in a candy commercial a couple of years ago, or soda or chips. Some kind of junk-food commercial. I remember watching it and literally shouting "Holy crap! Boom-Boom is selling this crap!"

Now that was an ensemble!

LHJ was the son of West Indian immigrants. He strove, pounded the pavements and won breakout roles. He still looks wonderful, and who can forget him as the Jackson 5 patriarch, Joe Jackson (who was never this good looking, but casting always takes poetic license) in the Jacksons' mimniseries?

Stay well, Boom Boom. You are fondly remembered. Next to John Travolta, you did well on that show.
