We were always warned that wolfsbane is a gateway drug.
He’s never been the same since Ditka copyrighted his haircut.
It’s O.K.; the entire state of New Jersey is in a form of rehab right now.
“Lovey, someone on that nasty site Free Republic is saying I look like Herman Munster. Do something about it.” :-)
My last job was........
It pretty much has to sux to be the 55 year old former Eddie Munster.
Rock star status when you're a kid, then downhill from there.
Looks like Lurch had a better future. He married a ketchup queen and owns a tax free yacht.
He did have to serve in Vietnam, don’tchya know.
And as he said he’s “fascinated by rap.”
Even Thing has achieved more. Hasn’t spent one moment in rehab.
I thought his dad was Judge Napolitano. Same hairdo.
When you get your children into acting you are creating their identity and perceived values only takes effect when they are performing. All moments off stage drives them to feel that connection and acceptance again in the only place they can, in front of an audience. Like starving someone of oxygen, their actions become more desperate as the oxygen is used up in their system. I personally think it is cruel, because they are not aware this system is being installed in them and it will be a life long desperation which will enslave them.
How do you explain the child stars who have gone on to have good adult lives? I say it has a lot more to do with the family life off the clock.
I thought he grew up to be Judge Napolitano on Fox.
The song “Whatever happened to Eddie Munster?” by Butch Patrick.
How about “Roly poly fish heads” involving Billy Mumy of Lost in Space fame?
Prayers for him.
Ummm name a few? How often is the term childhood actor and normal used in the same sentence?
I think of Rick Schroeder, Fred Savage, and that kid who played in Webster to name three.
