    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.

    He's the tough guy villian in the greatest action movie of 1991!
