He crossed sag picket lines to make those commercials and his career never recovered. He soon after got busted for possession of pot. Where is he now?
Since I had a big crush on him during those commercials, I was devastated a few years ago to learn that he had just done some production of TAKE ME OUT at NYU (I don't know if he was a student there or what) and I didn't learn about it until it was already over. Still devastated that I missed my chance to see Steve the Dell Dude naked!
He's out, I think.
He was from Chattanooga and his dad was gay, if I recall. Straight but very gay-friendly. Now if Flo the Progressive lady would only do a similar disappearing act I think we would all appreciate it.
His Dad is an out Episcopalian preacher.
Hmmm, Ben Curtis was on the TV drama Mercy in 5 episodes.
