    Demond Wilson's character Lamont Sanford is best friends with Rollo Lawson, portrayed by Nathaniel Taylor. However, in real life behind the scenes it was the polar opposite. Wilson said in a 2015 interview with ILoveOldSchoolMusic.Com that Taylor never really did like him while they were filming the series, and that the last time he saw Taylor was in 1977.
