"Police Academy" Actor Bubba Smith Dead at 66

Posted: August 4th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Police Academy" Actor Bubba Smith Dead at 66Submit Comment
Bubba Smith, a football star who went on to star in the "Police Academy" films and Miller Lite commercials, was found dead Wednesday at his Baldwin Hills home in Los Angeles. He was 66.

Smith's body was discovered by a caretaker, police said. Officials believe he died of natural causes.

The 6'7 tall Charles Aaron Smith was a defensive lineman and future College Football Hall of Famer at Michigan State, then played nine seasons in the pros with the Baltimore Colts, Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers from 1967-76, winning the Super Bowl.

In the "Police Academy" films of the 1980s, Smith's character, the aptly named Moses Hightower, hovered over his fellow misfit cadets in the franchise's first film in 1984 and its five sequels.

Moses Hightower was a better name, he should've legally changed it to that.

Hightower was definitely one of my favorite characters as a kid. Only later in life did I learn about his greatness in the NFL.

RIP Bubba

Amazing the short lifespan of these NFL athletes. Rough sport.

he was definitely the baddest of the cadets. I had always hoped for a Tackleberry/ Hightower spin-off.

I always liked his character in Police Academy

Wished Hollywood would have given him more opportunities.

But unfortunately Hollywood loves to give tons of opportunities to societal wastes like the Charlie Sheens and Lindsey Lohans

Well sh*t! This news sucks!

I liked this guy. He was one of the few things/people I liked from Police Academy (when he was going for his driver's test and he tore the seat out of the car and sat in the back seat... or when one ordered all that food at the fast food joint and he said 'I'll have the same... all priceless).

RIP gentle giant.
