About a year ago, I made a concerted effort to watch Angel from beginning to end, rather than in just scattershot episodes, as it aired on TNT. As I was watching the first season, I kept thinking that Glenn Quinn, who played Doyle, was really cool and appealing and wondering why I hadn't seen him in anything else. Looking him up on the IMDB, I found that he'd died of a Heroin overdose several years ago, which slipped right past my notice at the time.
I loved him in Roseanne, rented R.S.V.P. in 2003. After I saw R.S.V.P. I went on the net to see what his next project was and was shocked to see he had overdosed about a year before.
