Jimmy Walker as JJ 'Dynomite!' Evans - GOOD TIMESJimmy Walker's Lucky Hat - Before auditioning for a small role of a junkie in the Robert Duvall police thriller Badge 373 (1973), comedian Jimmy Walker felt he needed a hat to get into the character and so he purchased a floppy hat for $1.99 from a Manhattan subway stand. Stomping on the hat to make it look dirty, he donned the hat and won the part. Ever since, he has worn the lucky hat on such TV series as GOOD TIMES and BUSTIN' LOOSE.

TRIVIA NOTE: On the British sitcom KEEPING UP APPEARANCES/BBC/1990-95 the character Onslow (Geoffrey Hughes) wore a hat sporting the initials "FH." They letters stood for Fulton Hogan, Ltd., a New Zealand asphalt and road building company. Hughes was given the hat by a lorry (truck) driver. See also - "JJ's Paintings"
