The Motor City Comic Con returns to Novi, MI May 17-19 and I will be "On the Beat" as usual. While I look forward to this year, I look back at some of my favorite moments over the years at MCCC.
Ernest Lee Thomas rose to fame as "Raj" on tv's What's Happening!! Several years later, he reprised that role on What's Happening Now!! He also had a recurring role on Everybody Hates Chris.
I had the pleasure o meeting Ernest several years ago at MCCC and I landed an interview with him there. That interview can be found at On the Beat with Ernest L. Thomas.
That interview was a lot of fun, especially because Ernest started it with a bit of extra humor. Little things like that make for memorable moments for me, but probably also help him get through the many interviews he has to do at such conventions. I am grateful for his time and even more so for him being a great sport.
I love the picture, too. Our shirts are a pretty close match in color.
