Your clues bring to mind either The Jeffersons, or another show featuring a junk yard owner. But I can’t think of the stars’ names.

I was (I have passed from this mortal coil) a shy and intensely private man, described by some as reclusive. I avoided the Hollywood limelight and little of my personal life was public knowledge beyond the facts that I never married and had no children. Of the character that made me famous, I said, "Playing (this character) was hard for me. But he was the character. I had to do it."
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Sherman Billingsley? (I did not Google; it just floated up from the depths of my unconscious mind.

The Junkyard owners were Sanford and Son which featured Redd Foxx.

Sherman Hemsley is correct.

The rumor that Sherman married Barbara Billingsley has never been proven ;p

That's right! I vaguely knew the name was "Red", but couldn't think of any Reds other than Skelton and Buttons.

Not sure who is up between me and Foolsnobody, but I am ready so I will go for it.

1) I was born in 1951 in Southern California
2) My mother was an actress, but not one most people would recognize by name.
3) My mother played a character that was probably more famous and well known than she was.

4) My dad was another actor you probably never heard of. He suggested I could be an actor too!

I'm sure I get at most 1/2 credit for Sherman and Zero Credit for Billingsley. Now I have to Google Billingsley.

When I saw Billingsley, all I could picture was Beaver's mother at the altar getting married to George Jefferson!

Not Huey, though I think that is a great guess.

8) In 1976 I had a breakthrough. I was cast in a horror movie to play a friendly teenager type; my character was killed before the end of the movie.

9) I was grateful that the actress playing the antagonist in the film guided my acting as a mentor.

10) Around 1977 I auditioned for the role of Luke Skywalker; I did not get the part.
