‘The New Prince’ Reboot Actor Adrian Holmes Involved In A Fatal Accident
Adrian Holmes – The man who plays Uncle Phil in the new reboot of ‘Fresh Prince’ – was involved in a car accident that fatally injured a man who was lying in the middle of the highway.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ… Holmes was heading south Monday on Interstate 110 north of Sunset Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles — when we were told, at approximately 7:35 p.m., that he had hit an unidentified man who was lying in his lane .
Our sources say Holmes was unable to avoid hitting the man… nor could the person driving directly behind him – who also called the person… whose body was pushed into the adjacent driveway… and hit by a third car. For those who live outside Los Angeles, Highway 110 is very busy.
John Doe has suffered fatal injuries, and the cops are investigating what may have led to his being there in the first place.
For now, our sources say… Drugs and alcohol are not believed to have been a factor for all the drivers involved – it’s unclear if that applied to the victim, though.
Like we said, Holmes plays Fresh Prince’s famous uncle from the original sitcom – only this time, there’s no will …because the reimagined version of ‘FP’ is a drama, with all new cast.
The new series — which has been picked for two seasons by Peacock — is based on a trailer for a viral short film that Will so much liked, and has signed on as executive producer.
