R.I.P. Jeff Conaway

Best known for his role as Kenickie in Grease to most of the world, or as Security Chief Zach Allen in Bablyon 5 for most of the geek world. To the Smithees, he will be one of the two people to have received a Smithee Awards Statue (and the only recipient to address the Smithee audience). Godspeed.

That's a super bummer.

I always thought he was best known as Bobby Wheeler on "Taxi", but maybe that's just because that's where I first saw him. Not the greatest actor, but always a good, solid guy.

Yeah, Taxi is his other big piece but I went with the Wikipedia entry which I assume mentions Grease because that was his big break role.
And, ironically given the cause of death, Jeff remains the only person ever to receive a Smithee Award Statue while sober.
