Sadness, another B5 actor gone. Seemed to be such a good guy.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

I'm not just saying this 'cause the dude died, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the character and really though Conway was one of the most under-appreciated actors on the show. Actually, Conway as an actor on B5 the show kind of parallels Allen as crew member on B5 the station: a flawed character surrounded by larger than life people.

Like many of you, Conway is Zach Allen to me before he's Kinnickie or that lame dude on Taxi. But anyway here's a clip of him playing the straight man to Christopher Lloyd's wackiness:

Perhaps a sign of how pop-culturally ignorant I am but I didn't even know he was being exploited by "Dr Drew" on Celebrity Rehab and that he had all these drug issues and he was in a band and everything.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

Another good one gone. It's such a shame that he never managed to overcome his demons.

My tribute...

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

From his Twitter feed:

Quote:
* People are twittering that Jeff Conaway is dead. He is classified as brain dead and life-support has been turned off but he is still alive.

* I have not yet heard anything to contradict that from anyone in a position to know the full story. Just FYI.

* Jeff Conaway is gone. Tragic, unfortunate, unnecessary. No definitions today. Nothing's funny. He was a good guy.

* Original Star Trek core cast was alive and intact for 25+ years. B5 core cast down three already. WTF?

* @DRayburn We lost Andreas Katsulas, Rick Biggs, and now Jeff Conaway.

* @fizzixrat If we start including guest cast the list is going to get very long. Jeff, Rick and Andreas were core cast/regulars.

* @AgateGecko On any TV series, what defines core cast members isn't how much they're liked, it's if they appear in the main titles every week

* @AgateGecko But none of that matters on a personal basis: Tim was a great guy, much beloved, and his loss was a great burden.

Very very sad about this. I just don't have a lot of words. Time to get a list of the best Zach episodes going so I can get to watching today.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

Just watched "Conflicts of Interest" on my latest rewatch.Quite poignant as it's an episode where Zack has a fair bit of involvement.
