Abe Benrubi

Abe Benrubi. Watching Dark Angel tonight, I spied one of my favorite character actors, Abe Benrubi (who got his start on a favorite TV show from the past, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose). He was playing a gay man, which prompted all sorts of hopeful bear fantasies on my part; but unfortunately, it turns out he has (had) a girlfriend. Also, turns out he was born in Bloomington, IN (where I went to grad school).

You know, I remember Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, but I never really watched it. But this guy also played a gay man on Wings. Just another example of a straight man who isn’t afraid to “act”.
