Stephen Furst


Born - 8 May 1955, Norfolk, Virginia, USA

Chubby-faced, mischievous-looking, dark-haired American actor, the fat frat boy in the original Animal House. Born Stephen Feuerstein, he later shed 100 pounds, but his career was blighted by the diabetes complications that eventually led to his death at 62. And, of course, he found it difficult to avoid typecasting: American Raspberry (1977), Animal House (1978), Scavenger Hunt (1979), The Unseen (1980), Class Reunion (1982), Up the Creek (1984), If It's Tuesday, It Must Still Be Belgium (1987), The Dream Team (1989), Magic Kid (1993), Goldilocks and the Three Bears (1995), Deadly Delusions (1999), Title to Murder (2001), Sorority Boys (2002), Wild Roomies (2004) and Seven Days of Grace (2006), his last. Furst, who also tried his hand at direction in a few movies, married caterer Lorraine Wright in 1976 and they remained married till his death.
