Actor, director, and producer Stephen Furst has died at the age of sixty-three, from diabetes complications.
Furst initially came to national prominence with his role as Kent "Flounder" Dorfman in 1978's National Lampoon's Animal House. He went on to play characters such as Dr. Elliot Axelrod on NBC's St. Elsewhere (1982-1988) and Babylon 5's Vir Cotto.
Only part of the huge ensemble cast of St. Elsewhere, which included several
rather well-known actors near the beginning of their respective careers.
With Thomas Hulce (later of Amadeus) and Mark Metcalf, one of
Animal House's terrific villains, Douglas C. Neidermeyer.
Thanks for your time.
P.S. ~~ Unfortunately, right after I posted this piece, I found out that comedian Bill Dana had passed away. I'll be posting about him in a couple of days so I don't "bury" today's post!
