TFG remembers Charles Aaron “Bubba” Smith. He was a professional American football player in the 1960s and 1970s who became an actor in the late 1970s.
After leaving professional football, Smith began his acting career in small movie and television roles in the late 1970s and early 1980s, making appearances on the popular shows Good Times and Married With Children.
He is perhaps best known for his role as Moses Hightower in the Police Academy movie series, a role he has reprised in all but one of the series.
