Jimmie Walker says the cast of Good Times never hung out away from the set.  Jimmie played JJ on the ’70s sitcom and reveals behind the scenes atmosphere as distant.

The 71-year-old threw some serious shade at his former castmates, John Amos, who played his father James Evans, Esther Rolle, who played his mother, Michael and Thelma played by Ralph Carter and Bern Nadette Stanis and Ja’Net DuBois, who played Willona.

According to Walker, in real-life, the cast wasn’t close at all and he didn’t speak to his TV mother and father when they left the set.

“I will honestly say, I don’t remember ever speaking a word to Ester the whole time she was there,” remembered Walker.

Jimmie goes on to talk about his relationship with John Amos (James), and how they likely speak more often now than back then.
