James Avery, the wonderfully funny actor who played Uncle Phil on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air has passed, here's the reaction from co-star Will Smith.
"Some of my greatest lessons in Acting, Living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery," Smith wrote. "Every young man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in Peace."
Avery died Dec. 31 at age 68 in Glendale.
