Biography | show moreshow less
Hal Williams, an American actor, was born on December 14, 1938, in Columbus, Ohio. Recognized for his distinctive voice and robust on-screen presence, Williams carved out a successful career in television and film spanning several decades.

One of Williams' most celebrated television roles was that of Lester Jenkins on the NBC sitcom "227," which aired from 1985 to 1990. The show centered around a middle-class African American family living in Washington D.C., and Williams' portrayal of the kind-hearted yet often bemused Lester endeared him to many viewers. His chemistry with co-star Marla Gibbs, who played his wife Mary, was a significant aspect of the show's appeal. In addition to "227," Williams had a recurring role on the beloved series "Sanford and Son" as Officer Smitty, one half of the comedic police duo who frequently visited the titular Sanford's junkyard. This role, which he held from 1972 to 1976, showcased Williams' aptitude for comedic timing

His talents were not confined to the small screen. In film, Williams had roles in notable movies such as "Private Benjamin" (1980) and "The Rookie" (1990). Throughout his career, he often played authority figures, from military officers to police detectives, capitalizing on his commanding presence.
