In the Hollywood scene, Wilson became famous after he landed the lead role of Lamont Sanford in the sitcom Sanford and Son. The sitcom ran from 1972 to 1977. Initially, Johnny Brown has been considered to take up the role due to his impressive performance in the show Laugh-In. Things changed when Wilson bagged the position, and Brown went ahead to star in a different role. Wilson’s fame increased in the show after Redd Foxx walked away in 1974 following a salary dispute with the producers. In 1977, the popular show was cancelled.
