    ANIMAL HOUSE is another of those movies which everyone has seen but I never bothered with, such as TITANIC, GONE WITH THE WIND, etc.

    I’m sure Mr. Furst was a perfectly lovely man, but if ANIMAL HOUSE is his only claim to fame or accomplishment, Mr. Furst’s legacy is slim indeed.

      He was also in St Elsewhere and Babylon 5. He also has a lot of cameos(Murder She Wrote, Night Court, MacGuyver) and smaller movies ,etc. My favorite character would be Vir from Babylon 5.

        Thanks for the info. I was never much of a TV watcher. The only TV show you list that I ever actually saw (an episode or two) is “Murder She Wrote”. 😉
