So, it’s been 24 years since the character Tommy Strawn debuted on Martin. To this day, I still don’t know what he did for a living, son. In all seriousness, I spent a good deal of my childhood watching shows that Thomas Mikal Ford was in. With that being said, I’m definitely sad to see him go. However; instead of moping around, let’s all celebrate the performances he’s given us.
Now, while Tommy Strawn is the character that Ford is most known for, I also remember watching him in A Different World, The Jamie Foxx Show and underrated classic, New York Undercover. Side note, I’m not including his work on The Parkers because I like to pretend as if that show never existed. In any case, while he’s been on a variety of shows, there’s nothing wrong with being identified with a particular character. Shit, most actors would be lucky if they were remembered by any type of iconic role. With that being said, let’s all take a moment and laugh at some videos of Tommy Strawn’s non-working ass. Rest In Peace, Tommy Ford.
P.S. Shout-out to my GTD crew from college. We learned all about getting the drawers from Tommy Strawn. That is all.
