Anthony Johnson was 55-years-old.
He then appeared in films such as Lethal Weapon 3 and Threat Society 2, before his most famous role was played by Ezal in the 1995 comedy Friday.
It was rumored that AJ was about to reprise his role in the upcoming film Last Friday, the fourth and final installment in the Friday franchise.
During his career, he starred in almost 50 films and TV series. Among them were the likes of Moesha, Malcolm and Eddie, Martin.
Cause of death
His death came just months after his Friday colleague Tommy “Tiny” Lister died at the age of 62. Tiny – a nickname he got ironically at 6’5 – was best known for playing Deebo at the box office.
The star was found “unconscious” in her Los Angeles apartment in December 2020 and died on the spot after her battle with Covid.
Tommy’s manager, Cindy Cowan, stated that Tommy was struggling to breathe just days before his death. Cindy explained that the actor already tested positive for Covid in early 2020.
She told People, “He thought maybe his diabetes was starting to grow because he was just not okay. He said, “I feel like I have got Covid again.” However, a few days later, Cindy said that Tommy was still there.
