In the Superior Donuts episode “Homeless for the Holidays,” a homeless man named John falls ill at the donut shop. In the spirit of Christmas, Franco (Jermaine Fowler) convinces his boss Arthur (Judd Hirsch) and the rest of the crew to help John get back on his feet.
Homeless man John is portrayed by Keith David. The veteran actor is known for his roles on the TV shows Greenleaf (Bishop Greenleaf), Community (Elroy Patashnik), ER (Pastor Watkins), and in the films Platoon (King, see link above), Bird (Buster Franklin), and There’s Something About Mary (Mary’s dad), among many others. David has won three Emmy Awards for his voice-over work – which includes narration work for Jackie Robinson (2016), The War (2007), Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jackie Johnson (2004), and Ken Burns’ Jazz (2001), among others. David can sing too! (video below). Superior Donuts airs Mondays at 9pm on CBS, right after Man With a Plan, and right before 9JKL.
