What a sad way to kick off 2014.
James Avery, a.k.a. ‘Uncle Phil’ from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, passed away today at an L.A. Hospital after suffering complications from open heart surgery. He was 65 years old.
Avery starred in dozens of TV shows through the years — shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Closer,” “L.A. Law,” and “The Jeffersons.” But of course, we will ALWAYS remember him best as The Big Guy from Fresh Prince.
RIP, Uncle Phil.
