Music Deaths: Stephen Furst "Animal House's" Flounder
STEPHEN FURST, 63
Died June 16, 2017
OK, he wasn't a singer, but he was on that great movie and soundtrack "National Lampoon's Animal House." I regard that as the best movie ever made as it reminds me so much of my old fraternity, Delta Sigma Phi at Northern Illinois University. Until the end, this was my fraternity. We even had our own Bluto we called Czyck (pronounced Shike, long i)
Delta House was Delta Sig House. Alright, we didn't cause a horse to have a hear attack in the dean's office. Nor did we ever hve a Toga Party, but I'm sure we would have if we'd known about them. And like Boone and the others, we really loved R&B music. We were kind of the misfit frat at Northern, not as bad as the Delta Taus though.
Actor, film and television director. His big break came in 1978 when he played Kent "Flounder" Dorfman on"National Lampoon's Animal House." Then, the next year, he played the same character on the TV series "Delta House."
He played other roles on TV's "St. Elsewhere" and "Babylon 5."
