Malcolm-Jamal Warner On The One 'Cosby Show' Theme He Didn't Like And More (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who "Cosby Show" fans know as Theo Huxtable, stopped by "Katie" on Friday to reminisce about the good old days for her Hollywood Heartthrob episode.

Warner was just 13 when he started his eight-year sting on "The Cosby Show" and said "the experience was incredible," adding, "One of the rare things about the show was that we all genuinely liked each other."

Couric couldn't help but ask about her favorite part of "The Cosby Show": the title sequences. "We had a lot of fun doing it and all of them were fun except the one I think with the Caribbean theme," he said with a laugh, noting the Season 5 opener below.

Warner attributed the show's success and the cast's ease with creator and star Bill Cosby, noting he "really set the tone" because of anyone, he could have so cocky and big-headed about his work, but had so much humility.

These days, Warner recurs on NBC comedy "Community," he's a poet, he has a jazz band called Miles Long and he's gearing up to star in "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C. this fall.
