Irish actor Glenn Quinn acquired a small, but devoted, following from appearances in the television situation comedy Roseanne, and as the half-demon Doyle, in Angel, the spin-off from Buffy, The Vampire Slayer. Quinn was less successful on the big screen. His first role was as a drummer in the John Travolta rock musical Shout (1991), in which he shared a kiss with Gwyneth Paltrow, but later parts - in the horror movies Dr Giggles (1992) and Campfire Tales (1997), and Live Nude Girls (1995) - were forgettable. Ironically, his most recent film, the noir drama RSVP (2002), was voted the best of the film festivals in its category, and was released to good reviews last autumn.

The Rest of the Story …

In many obituaries online, they repeat the story that “…with his television money, he bought a half-share in the Los Angeles nightclub Goldfingers, and would visit it quietly every week without patrons realising he was the co-owner” Sadly these publishers could not be more wrong. It was true that he was a co-owner of the now defunct Goldfingers in Hollywood, unfortunately he showed up quite often, drunk and stoned, hitting patrons up of money and being a general nuisance. His partners quickly bought out his share.

And all that money he made from Roseanne and Angel? It was all gone by the time he died from drug and alcohol abuse. His family even had to raise money for his funeral and grave marker.

cause_of_death: Homicide - blunt force trauma

claim_to_fame: Show Business

best_know_for: Robert Edward Crane was an actor, drummer, radio personality, and disc jockey known for starring in the CBS television comedy Hogan's Heroes about the hilarious high jinks of prisoners in a concentration camp during WW II. In the early 1960s, he moved from radio into acting, eventually landing the lead role of Colonel Robert Hogan in Hogan's Heroes. The series aired from 1965 to 1971, and Crane received two Emmy Award nominations. Crane's career declined after Hogan's Heroes. He became frustrated with the bit parts he was offered such as The Love Boat, Ellery Queen, Police Woman and the short-lived The Bob Crane Show. Crane returned to performing in dinner theaters when his body was found bludgeoned to death in his Scottsdale, Arizona, apartment while on tour in June 1978 for a dinner theater production of Beginner's Luck. The murder remains officially unsolved. His previously uncontroversial public image suffered due to the suspicious nature of his death and posthumous revelations about his personal life.
