    Bummer. I thought he did a good job on Grace Under Fire.

    R.I.P.

    They aren't giving a cause of death yet, but I suspect it will not be a good one. Child actors who die at 33... you know that story won't end well.

    BTW, I believe this was the young actor who was sexually harrassed by Grace Under Fire actress Rhett Butler, and he quit the show as a result in 1996. Hard to believe, but it did happen.

    Sad fall for ''Grace Under Fire''

    I think you mean Brett Butler. But don't worry, Rhett Butler probably wouldn't give a damn.

    I thought he was funny on Grace Under Fire. Brett was so screwed up though. A shame he had to quit the show because of her terrible behavior. They really should have just canceled the show by 1996. Her career never really recovered after Grace Under Fire ended.

    Aaaaa, Rhett, Brett, same deal.

    We worked on Grace Under Fire at the LA post house I worked for in the 1990s, and I heard nothing but awful stories from the editors. But the crew on Ellen DeGeneres' show and Roseanne Barr's show always seemed to think things were OK. Go figure.

    Roseanne would fire writers left and right which is why her show was so inconsistent and eventually (say it with me now) HAAAARABLE.

    Never heard anything about Ellen being a problem on her sitcom(s) but that doesn't mean much. She seems to be pretty well-liked in general.

    Very true. But she was not difficult with the post-production people I worked with. In fact, I think she had the same editor (Joe Bella) for about 8 years.

    Well that's good, but firing the writers ruined the overall product no matter how good the editing might've been...

    Vidiot,

    Have you ever met any celebrities?

    Yes, quite a few. Long list. Most of them were either distant or very nice. Very few were ***holes.

    Fittingly, she ended up in Anger Management with fellow reprobate Charlie Sheen.

    RIP, Jon Paul Steuer

    Eh, we'd be here all day. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not here to promote myself -- I'm just a working stiff making a living. You bump into people one in awhile, and it's a fleeting experience.

    I beg your pardon - but it's not the same.
