Chicken George's smile


i love it

reply

I love his smile too. He is just about my favorite character. I sure would be hard to decide on one. I also thought him very handsome in 1977 when I first saw Roots.

Ben Vereen is just a very likable guy!

He is a true performer with charisma, timing, range and talent. Irreplaceable!

If your mother was played by Leslie Uggams you'd have a big smile, too. She has always had me in awe of her smile, and seeing her on Broadway several times, it's as big on stage and as bright as it was on TV. Chicken George managed to inherit the smile from his mother, not his nasty white daddy.
