Johnny Brown was born on June 11, 1937 in St. Petersburg, Fla. He had a bit part in the cult favorite The Out-of-Towners, starring Jack Lemmon. After appearing as the idle janitor in Good Times, Brown launched numerous projects, including The Wiz, The Parkers, Kenan and Kel, The Jamie Foxx Show, The Jeffersons, Family Matters, Martin, a recurring role on the Wayans Bros. and Sister, Sister.
Affectionately known as "Booger" and "Buffalo Butt," Nathan Bookman is the project's indolent superintendent. His relationship with the Evans family and Willona is turbulent. He's been known to cook up a scheme or two that could get them evicted, but the Evans family is always two steps ahead of him. As time goes by, they all learn to cohabit in the same space. No matter how big "Buffalo Butt" may seem to get, there's room for everyone in their Chicago neighborhood.
