I look just like I did when I was a kid. It`s hard for a child actor to start working again. I`ve never played a part over Nineteen. I`m always a teenager and there haven`t been many jobs until recently. I`ll see how this turns out. If this doesn`t do it for me, nothing will. I go all the way through the picture.

MandyLovesVintage - Words can`t express how much love I have for this guy. I`m sad I managed to mess up his entire profile nearly a year ago, which I had worked hard to pay in tribute. He, to this day has been misunderstood by the media. They have done nothing but flame this delightful character actor. Many half-truths have been said about him. I`m an avid collector of his work, not neglecting his *entire* teenage & adult career having almost all titles he has been in. I`m confident in saying he`s a true icon in American Pop Culture. All of his characters were gold. These `Historians` never invested the time to actually LEARN about his life. They only bring up the Urban Legend of what his life `became`. I, having been a true fan since age 5, am pretty sure I could write a book about him. In a positive and respectful manner. (5 years ago)
