Cockroach - The Cosby Show
During Theo Huxtable’s time in high school, his best friend was Walter Bradley, better known as Cockroach. Despite being an underachiever in school, Cockroach was Theo’s co-conspirator in a variety of schemes, exhibiting his determination when it came to getting girls or becoming famous. Unfortunately, we didn’t see much of Cockroach after an episode of The Cosby Show when Theo gave him his spot to appear on a fictional TV show called Dance Mania, and then afterwards became jealous of the fact that Cockroach appeared on TV. Luckily for Cockroach fans, the actor who played the character, Carl Anthony Payne, II, went on to play another hilarious sidekick role as Cole on the sitcom Martin.
