Bloody hell, I just heard. So very awfully sad. I have no words.

Rest in peace, Mr. Furst. You are already missed.

I can't believe it. So glad I got a chance to meet him in 2014 in Galveston. I can't believe it.

Re: RIP Stephen Furst :(

I just saw this and came straight here. This poor series has lost way too many actors way too early. It seems like it never stops. I seriously hope we don't have to do another post like this for a long ass time..

RIP Stephen

How incredibly sad Like Sinclair says above, this poor series has lost way too many actors way too early.

RIP Stephen

Re: RIP Stephen Furst :(

This news shocked me, he was not that old and he had such a positive attitude towards diabetes and how serious a condition it was. He was so well known and loved for his work, and he seemed like he was one of the better grounded actors.

Re: RIP Stephen Furst :(

I noticed him in Sorority Boys (2002) & I rember thinking... " he looks older then I thought he was." Vir was a younger character and it was just odd seeing the guy a couple years later looking way older. I walked by a TV with the NASCAR race on Sunday... the announcer mentioned this and I looked for more details on my phone, it became a sad day.

The guy made Vir a fan favorite... as an actor though he will live on.
