James "Toofer" Spurlock is a recurring, then regular character portrayed by Keith Powell on 30 Rock.

Toofer is an African-American writer for TGS.

He has an aversion to the stereotypical aspects of black culture that he believes are embodied by Tracy Jordan.

Therefore, his primary purpose on the show thus far seems to be as a foil to Tracy Jordan. And to get picked on by Frank as well.

Toofer Quotes

Toofer: He's an imbecile.
Pete: Well, he's our imbecile now.

Tracy: So, how you doing over there, Theo Huxtable.
Toofer: I'm doing good.
Tracy: Nah-uh. Superman does good; you're doing well. You need to study your grammar, son.
Frank: [to Toofer] Wow, that was embarrassing for you.

30 Rock Quotes

Fine, I will try the other location. But frankly, LaDonica, you have not been real helpful.

Kenneth

I believe that when you have a problem, you talk it over with your priest, or your tailor, or the mute elevator porter at your men's club. Then you take that problem and you crush it with your mind vice. But for lesser beings, like curly haired men and people who need glasses, therapy can help.
