Actor

Born - 5 October 1950, New York City, USA

An iconic figure for his portrayal of Kenickie in Grease (1978), and remembered by sci-fi fans as security chef Zack Allen in the series Babylon 5 in the 1990s, the career of this tousle-haired New Yorker never quite lived up to its early promise. He was barely out of his teens when he made his film debut in Jennifer on My Mind (1971). Subsequent movies, mostly in featured roles, included The Eagle Has Landed (1976), Pete's Dragon (1977), Covergirl (1984), The Patriot (1986), Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988), A Time to Die (1991), Eye of the Storm (1992), 2002: Rape of Eden (1994), The Last Embrace (1997), Jawbreaker (1999), The Biz (2002), Living the Dream (2006), Wrestling (2008) and Dark Games (2011), his last. There were many others that went straight to video or DVD. He died from an overdose of prescription drugs, plus heart problems.
