Jim Bowman was the nervous next door neighbor of Archie whom, after the death of his wife, sought to move out of their home, and needing to find a more affordable place to live, desperately and secretly sold his house to the Jeffersons amid pressure from the neighborhood not to sell to a minority in the episode titled Lionel Moves Into The Neighborhood (Season 1, episode #8). He was played by Vincent Gardenia, who would appear in later episode as Curtis Remply, in Episode 7 of Season 3 (as a swinger opposite Rue McClanahan), then as a cast regular in the part of liberal-minded househusband Frank Lorenzo in season 4 opposite Betty Garrett who would play his factory working, mechanically inclined liberal wife Irene.
