Come to think of it, a few years back, on a production involving him here in Toronto the poor guy had to ask his mom (who was his agent) permission just have milk. He was actually clean during this period. He really tried. At least he has left us with a really fun legacy stemming from our youths. It would have been nice for him to age with the rest of us. Maybe he could have jumped back into the spotlight in a more predominant role again.
