      Highest Rated: 97% The Celluloid Closet (1996)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Aug 14, 1946

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      Although best remembered for his role as a loveable street informant named Huggy Bear on the 1970s cop show "Starsky & Hutch" (ABC 1975-79), Antonio Fargas had a long and prolific acting career that stretched all the way back to the early 1960s. He made his feature film debut at the age of 14 as a Harlem teenager in 1963's "The Cool World," and by the early 1970s was making a name for himself with roles in numerous Blaxploitation films. Some of the films he appeared in during this time, like "Shaft" (1971), "Across 110th Street" (1972) and "Foxy Brown" (1974), are considered classics of the largely discontinued genre. Fargas' breakout role, however, came in 1975 when he landed a recurring part as the well-liked street snitch on "Starsky & Hutch." The show ended after four years, but Fargas continued to act in TV and movies, including some memorable cameos in the Wayans Brothers films "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" (1988) and "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood" (1996), thus underscoring his longevity in an otherwise cutthroat business.
