Adolph Caesar "talks" to Bruce Lee


Caesar was born in Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, New York, as the youngest of three sons born to a Dominican mother.


Caesar appeared in Norman Jewison's film A Soldier's Story, for which he received a nomination for "Best Actor in a Supporting Role" from both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. He also played the role of "Old Mister" in the Steven Spielberg film, The Color Purple and appeared in Fist of Fear, Touch of Death.

In addition to his film career, Caesar did much voice-over work for television and radio commercials, including theatrical previews and radio commercials for many blaxploitation films such as Cleopatra Jones, Superfly, Truck Turner and The Spook Who Sat by the Door. Caesar also lent his voice to Silverhawks, in which he voiced Hotwing, a magician and skilled illusionist.


Caesar's last completed film was Club Paradise released posthumously. Caesar was working on the Los Angeles set of the 1986 film, Tough Guys (with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas) when he suffered a heart attack and died a short time later. He was interred in the Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. Caesar was survived by his wife, two daughters, and a son.
