“Dynomite! Good Times! Bad Times! Our Times” the title of Jimmie Walker’s autobiography, and one that sums up the experience of the creators, cast, and fans of Good Times. Walker played popular character “J.J” in the series and along with stalwarts like Estelle Rolle (Florida Evans), and John Amos (James Evans Snr.) were a part of a sitcom that was not without its controversy both on and off the set.

It’s no secret how often the ages of characters on shows are completely different from the real person. “J.J Evans,” might have been a teenager, but actor Jimmie Walker was 27-years-old when he played him. His TV-dad “James Evans Snr.” played by John Amos, was just eight years older than his “son.”
