Wasn’t he in one of the Short Circuit movies?
Member of "The Folksmen" in A Mighty Wind. Hilarious!
Best of Show - Waiting for Guffman - Spinal Tap and many more ...
I just remembered, he played “Perry White” in one of the very best episodes of “Smallville”. He basically made the show.
Was Squiggy driving the car?
Bad looking photos but he had his arm up as if to accomodate the EMTs doing their work. Good sign. Prayers up!
Might have been Squiggy.
His wife is a hottie too. I certainly would be reluctant to shuffle off the mortal coil if I could look forward to coming home to Annette O’Toole.
I think "The Big Ragoo" was driving.
If i recall correctly “Squiggy” suffered from MS but is still around.
It goes to 11...
Given the driver also hit and knocked over a large metal urban trashcan and a mailbox, pulling a metal blue postal mailbox out of the ground, speeding is a reasonable assumption.
David St. Hubbins: No of course we're not going to do %@$#! Stonehenge tomorrow night!
Certainly. Short Circuit 2. Critics didn’t think much of it, but it was fun.
You can’t assume the driver was not at fault. They write these stories so as not to get sued, so it could well be the driver was at fault.
He was great in one of my favorite X-Files episodes as well.
That’s right. Fred. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it. I remember one line to this day. “Los locos kick yer ass. Los locos kick your face. Los locos kick yer balls into outer space!”
He, as Morris Fletcher, also traded bodies with Fox Mulder on The X-Files and smacked Scully on the behind. Classic episodes.
Indeed he was. He was in at least three X-files episodes I can think of off the top of my head...playing the enigmatic Morris Fletcher.
How awful. I hope that he recovers quickly and fully.
