American actor Ernest Lamont Johnson Jr. (September 30, 1922 – October 24, 2010), and also film director, was famous for many television shows and movies, like Jerry Maguire (1996), CSI: Miami (2002), and V.I.P. (1998). He began his career in radio playing the role of Tarzan in a popular series in 1951 and worked as a newscaster and disc jockey. He was able to portray Archie Goodwin in The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe.

In 1948, Johnson's directing debut came with the play Yes Is For a Very Young Man in New York. He directed The Man in the Moon (1959), Iphigénie en Tauride (1962), and Orfeo (1990), and the series Felicity, plus the television movie The Man Next Door (1996). He was nominated for nine Emmy Awards, winning twice, for Wallenberg: A Hero's Story (1985) and Lincoln (1988) — both for Outstanding Directing For A Miniseries Movie Or A Dramatic Special.
