EXPIRED: 10/29/11 – Wyatt Knight, 56, went from being an actor with a ton of promise to a baby wrangler, a stunt man and an extra on a lot of Hollywood movies no-one has ever heard of. But that’s okay, because he had a blessed life with a great set of kids and a wonderful wife. Unfortunately the actor, who came to fame as the star of the the 1980s “Porky’s” films, also had non-Hodgkin lymphoma. And the emotional and physical pain became too much to bear.
So the actor who portrayed bad boy Tommy Turner in “Porky,” and it’s sequels “Porky’s II: The Next Day” and “Porky’s Revenge,” left Los Angeles for beautiful and serene Kula, Hawaii and took a gun to his head to end his suffering.
What an awful way to go.
