Profile Bio Text
Franklin Edward Cover (November 20, 1928 – February 5, 2006) was an American actor most noted for starring on the sitcom The Jeffersons. His character, Tom Willis, was half of one of the first interracial marriages to be seen on prime-time television.

He also appeared in Forty Carats with Julie Harris. He made his television debut on Naked City and later appeared on The Jackie Gleason Show. His first significant role was on The Jeffersons as Tom Willis who was married to a black wife, Helen, played by Roxie Roker. The couple lived in the same high-rise apartment building as the sitcom`s title characters. Cover would often be the foil to Sherman Hemsley`s black businessman, George Jefferson. The sitcom ran from 1975 to 1985. He also appeared in The Stepford Wives in 1975. Following the end of The Jeffersons, Cover continued to make guest appearances on television shows as well as appearing in a supporting role in Wall Street.
