Reginald VelJohnson to Reprise Role for “Turner & Hooch” Series Coming to Disney+

Reginald VelJohnson will reprise his role as David Sutton in the upcoming Turner & Hooch series coming to Disney+, according to Deadline.

  • VelJohnson co-starred in the 1989 film and his character, David Sutton, will be the mayor in the new series.
  • The actor will recur on the series as his old character who, back in ’89, was Scott Turner Sr.’s partner and helped him and the original Hooch solve the biggest case in Cypress Beach History.
  • Now, Sutton is a close family friend to his old partner’s kids, Scott and Laura.
  • There is little that happens in Cypress Beach that Mayor Sutton doesn’t know about and when Scott and Laura begin investigating one of their father’s old cases, it’s only a matter of time until David’s involved.
  • VelJohnson is the first actor from the original film to reprise his role for the new series.
  • He is known for his roles as Carl Winslow on the ABC sitcom Family Matters and a police officer in the classic action film Die Hard.
