2. Yikes.

His poor kid. That's awful.

I just saw one of his IRS commercials and thought he looked kind of old. Well, he was pushing 70.

15. Not Just An Actor

I learned this morning that Alan Thicke was more than just an actor. He was also a composer. He composed the theme songs for Different Strokes, Wheel of Fortune (the original version), and The Facts of Life, among other shows.
