Clarence Williams III


Born: 29 / 8 / 1939 , New York , Usa –

BIOGRAPHY:

As the son of a displaced musician, Harlem-born African-American actor Clarence Williams III was raised by his musical grandparents, the legendary jazz and boogie-woogie composer/pianist Clarence Williams, who wrote such classics as “T’Aint Nobody’s Business If I Do” and “Baby, Won’t You Please Come Home,” and blues singer Eva Taylor (1895-1977).

While attending a local YMCA as a teen, Williams became interested in dramatics. After a two-year hitch with the U.S. Air Force, he started up his acting career, making a minor New York stage debut with “The Long Dream” in 1960.

He continued impressively with roles in “Walk in Darkness” (1963), “Sarah and the Sax” (1964) and “Doubletalk” (1964), and capped his early career with a Theatre World Award and Tony-nomination for the three-person play “Slow Dance on the Killing Ground” (1964).

Continuing on with powerful work in “Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?” (1966) and “King John,” Vietnam-era Hollywood finally began to take notice of his “angry young man” charisma.
