'The Boondocks' Reboot: King Bach And J.D. Witherspoon Respond To Grandad Casting Rumors

Fans of The Boondocks obviously remember the voice of Robert “Grandad” Freeman being portrayed by the late great John Witherspoon.

With a reboot of the classic animated series on the horizon at HBO Max, rumors have been burgeoning about Witherspoon's potential successor in the role of Grandad. Recently (and out of nowhere), Twitter users began spreading an unfounded rumor that former Vine star and actor Andrew "King Bach" Bachelor would be voicing Grandad in the new series.

Once the unfounded rumor went viral, King Bach denied the rumors that he would be portraying Grandad in a text thread screenshot.

Bach was the only one to shut down the rumors. John Witherspoon's son, J.D., also took to Twitter to shut down the rumors.

In his tweets, J.D. also revealed that he and King Bach are great friends.

He also spoke on fan support and the calls for him to voice his father's character as well.

The Boondocks reboot is still in early development at HBO Max.
