 Clarence Williams III
Forever to be recalled as Linc Hayes, the Afro-sporting member of "The Mod Squad" trio, whose favorite expression was "Solid!", Clarence Williams III has gone on to become an established character actor, particularly rediscovered in the 1980s and 90s by young African-American directors.
Rather than be cast in similar roles on TV or in "Blaxploitation" films, Williams fled Hollywood when the series folded, although he did reprise the role of Linc in a 1979 TV-movie.
But it was not until the 90s that he began acting in TV regularly again, now in his almost patented, intense style in such projects as John Frankenheimer's "Against the Wall" (HBO, 1994) in which he was a leader of the Attica prison riots.
