THE GOOD GUYS: Julius Grant, Criminal Informant Character Bio and Video Clip
Julius Grant (RonReaco Lee), in my opinion, is the best of the main characters, and the most fun actor to watch on The Good Guys. He is, by a long shot, my favorite character of those who recur. He runs a pawn shop, in the first episode, and in this clip, you'll see how he tends to acquire his merchandise. Julius clearly starts out as a bad guy, in the show, but he is quickly turned into Stark and Bailey's Criminal Informant. Throughout the series, though he is not in every episode, he is put into many awkward situations at Stark and Bailey's hands. Lee's performances are often hysterical, and almost seem as if he was told the basic premise of every major scene he's in, not given a script, and then told to wing it. This clip, in the context of the series and episode, has one of the most hysterically hilarious scenes he has had to play. It is a true classic, and if I were a Producer or Director, I would do everything I could to get him in every one of my shows and movies. He recently appeared in the Burn Notice, Sam Axe origin story episode, so maybe he will eventually recur on the show. I would love to see that. Thanks, RonReaco, for making Julius Grant such a great character. He will be truly missed.
