Life and careerEdit

He is also known for having played the mohel on "The Bris" episode of Seinfeld and Coco Davis, the gay cook, on the pilot episode of The Golden Girls. His part was dropped in favor of making the character of Sophia Petrillo played by Estelle Getty a cast regular. (Many of her snassy one-liners were originally written for Coco.)

He appeared as a guest star on many television shows including Family Ties, Tales from the Darkside, The Twilight Zone, The Facts of Life, Falcon Crest (as Arthur Habermann), Punky Brewster (as Officer Bob), Thirtysomething, Night Court, L.A. Law (as Robert Caporale), Designing Women, Murphy Brown, NYPD Blue, and Law & Order. Charles appears in the pilot episode of The Golden Girls as Coco Davis, the gay cook for the women, whose part was dropped from the series in favor of further development of the Sophia Petrillo character, which was played by Estelle Getty, whereas many of the funny, acerbic, witty lines which would have been meant for the Coco part would now be rewritten and fall upon the Sophia character.
