    Perfect as Kent "Flounder" Dorfman, but also proved his versatility as an actor by playing good parts in St Elsewhere, and of course Babylon 5

    Classic

    - RIP Steve!

    Aw, boo. I was kind of hoping this wouldn't be the actor who played Vir. :(

    He tells a great little story on YouTube of going to the casting auditions for Babylon 5. Basically, everything went wrong before he finally arrived all flustered and apologetic, and the casting director simply pointed and said, "Oh my god, it's Vir!"

    There's also a very long interview here from 2002 about his acting career to date:
    An Interview with Stephen Furst - IGN

    Talk on B5 doesn't really begin until halfway down page 4. He does make a few comments on Star Trek actors before then. :)

    RIP, Stephen.

    No many of the B5 cast left.

    Oh no! We're going to be watching Animal House in September as it takes place at the beginning of the 1962 school year. Sorry to hear he passed so soon.
