Spying The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's Geoffrey Might Be the Highlight of Netflix's Ratched
Netflix's Ratched is a wild and violent ride through Lucia State Hospital in California, led by Nurse Mildred Ratched (Sarah Paulson). In episode two, new patients are welcomed to the hospital for Dr. Hanover (Jon Jon Briones) to experiment on. One of those patients is Len Bronley, a man with memory issues who has signed up for an experimental procedure, not realizing Dr. Hanover actually plans to lobotomize him. If Len looks familiar, it's because he's played by Joseph Marcell, better known as Geoffrey from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Marcell played the faithful butler in the Banks household during all six seasons of the show. That role was far from his first, though.
Marcell started acting in the '70s, though his first big recurring role was on Fresh Prince. He's also done extended stints on The Bold and the Beautiful and EastEnders and had numerous guest roles on a number of other TV shows. He's even done a couple voice-over roles. Check out some of Marcell's best pictures from the '90s in Fresh Prince in the gallery ahead, and pay close attention to Ratched to see how his procedure goes.
