That guy is a total mystery. I posted something a couple of years ago, and I think I got some replies but I don't think it was any definite news about Nathaniel. I would love to see a pic of him now.

You are so right about Nathaniel Taylor its like he was blacklisted by Hollywood You see Demond every now and then I know he's an Evangelist and Is doing or trying to do some of his own movie or tv stuff producing directing etc., Both Demond and Nathaniel are in there 60's now hard to believe as Fred would say Been Alot of years LOL

The last time Taylor was seen as a performer was in the 1986 "The Redd Foxx Show" on ABC. In addition to appearing in Sanford and Son and the spinoff Sanford, he was also in the 1980 Steve McQueen movie "The Hunter."

IIRC, I read somewhere on the net (it must be true then ) that Taylor simply retired from acting and Hollywood and returned to a normal life. There was a rumor that he was dead, but that was unfounded.

In fact,there are only 4 people left from Sanford and Son that are alive, Demond, Nathaniel,Lynn Hamilton,and Hal Williams,who played Smitty the policeman. I don't know whatever happened to the actors who played Swanny and Hoppy the policemen who were always with Smitty.

Noam Pitlik, who played Officer Swanhauser in the first season passed away in 1999.

However, in addition to Demond Wilson, Lynn Hamilton and Hal Williams, the following cast members of Sanford and Son are still with us:

Pat Morita (Ah Chew)
Gregory Sierra (Julio Fuentes)
Howard Platt (Officer Hopkins "Hoppy")

I could not find any verification if the actors/actresses who played Uncle Woodrow, Janet Lawson and Roger Lawson are still living.

I heard that Nathaniel Taylor was currently living in Arizona.

It's still sad that Pat Morita is now no longer with us. He and Gregory Sierra actually appeared in the same Hawaii Five-O episode from 1973, "Tricks Are Not Treats".

After a few appearances on S & S spinoff's and playing "Ike" on "What's Happenin'", Nate has pretty much dropped out of sight living a quiet existence off of his S & S and other TV royalties in his hometown of St. Louis. He celebrated his 70th birthday on March 31st of 2008. Rollo, Rita Larson's boy, was one extra cool dude jack!

I've been searching for some time now and cannot seem to find any recent pics of Nate. I have friends who live on Enright St. in St. Louis, which is where the Sanfords originated, who claim to have witnessed "RRS" (rare Rollo sightings). From what they say, he is a very private person. I will continue my quest for pics and if successful will share.
