    I'll always remember him as Jeff Spicoli's classroom pizza delivery man. RIP.

    It's crazy what is stored deep in your memory. I remember seeing him on "The Dating Game" and he was ID'd as an actor. He didn't get picked, of course, and I immediately thought that goofy-looking SOB had no chance of being a successful actor. And for the last 40 or so years I'd recall that every time he popped up on something I was watching. First time I saw "Fast Times ..." I said, there's that goofy-looking SOB from "The Dating Game."

    Was Rodney Dangerfield's son-in-law (and Jennifer Jason Leigh's husband) in "Easy Money."

    First role I thought of him in too. Weird, I was just thinking about that movie the other day.

    I think he was also in One Crazy Summer, a very underrated John Cusack/Demi Moore 80's flick.

    Good job remembering that one.

    I probably shouldn't threadjack an RIP thread, but what happened to Savage Steve Holland? He directed back-to-back 80s comedy classics, Better Off Dead and One Crazy Summer, then has been mostly directing episodes of kids' shows ever since.

    In 1982 he was hardly a star, so I want to know how he pulled off "Taylor Negron .... Himself" in the Fast Times at Ridgemont High credits.

    Still wondering how Chuck Negron managed to outlive cousin Taylor.
