This was Carlton’s Super Bowl. There are certain celebrity-types who despise the former roles they’ll be forever tied to. The actor who played Anakin Skywalker in Episode 1 burned all his Star Wars memorabilia. But not Carlton. I’d venture to guess that Carlton has his friends over on the weekends, drinks O’Douls, and watches re-runs of Fresh Prince, rewinding it at the parts of his that get the most chuckles. As he should. Carlton Banks was a pillar of my childhood. You know who knows that best? Carlton Banks.
Carlton is the modern day Uncle Rico. “How much you wanna bet I can throw my career over dem mountains?”
