The last RANDO’S EDITION WU@W was so popular, I have decided to drop another. Here’s 4 people that over the past couple of weeks I have wondered “Where They At?”. Enjoy!! Remember, submissions for this or any other feature on the site can be submitted to email@example.com.
Michael P. Fay
How you know him: Michael Fay was an American citizen (born in St. Louis) living with his mother and step-father in Singapore. He became “famous” in 1994, when as an 18 year old, he was sentanced to a few months in jail and six lashings from the cane for theft and vandalism. After Bill Clinton publicly asked for leinancy for Fay, and publicly disapproved of corporal punishment, Fay’s lashings were reduced from 6 to 4. Released after receiving his lashings in June of 1994, Fay immediately returned back to the US to live with his birth father. He gave a couple of interviews (for free), including one at the end of June on Larry King Live on CNN. Fay claimed (and stayed true) to never selling his story for profit, even though there were several book/movie deals on the table.
Where He At Now: Since the end of 1994, Fay has been in and out of trouble with the law and drugs. Late 1994 saw him burn his hands badly after a butane accident. He claimed sniffing the butane made him forget about Singapore. Also arrests in Florida followed for reckless driving, and marijuana possession (1996 and 1998). Though confessing to the drug charges, he was found not guilty because of shotty police work. No news since 1998 on what Michael Fay is up to these days.
Anthony Tyler Quinn
How You Know Him: Anthony Tyler Quinn played the role of the teacher named Mr. Turner on “Boy Meets World” from 1994-1997. He rode a motorcycle, took Shawn into his home, and was a younger mentor than Feeny. The ladies loved him, and the men wanted to be him.
Where He At Now: Pretty quiet since “Boy Meets World,” Quinn, now 46 is actually starring in the upcoming film “No Greater Love”. Check out the trailer below.
How You Know Him: Sean O’Neal played Sam Anders in the successful Nickelodeon show “Clarissa Explains It All”. Stealing a page out of the Zack Morris Manual of Pimpin’, Sam often visited Clarissa through her upstairs bedroom window. Always a friend to Clarissa and never more, he helped her out with problems and created hijinx with her in regards to brother Ferguson.
Where He At Now: Can’t find anything past like 1994 on this guy. Saw a couple rumors that he was in the band Mindless Self Indulgence and that he kept his role as Sam on the low-low-low because he didn’t want to be remembered as getting his fame from some corny TV show. I checked out the MSI MySpace and what not, but really can’t tell if he is actually in the band, or not. You be the judge, band photo below.
Donnie (now Don) Jeffcoat
I could do these Nickelodeon ones for days people…
How You Know Him: Donnie Jeffcoat was one of the three co-hosts of “Wild and Crazy Kids”, a kids show on Nickelodeon (pictured above with Omar Gooding…who we all still know, and Annette Chavez, who I didn’t bother to look up because she was replaced after season one by Jessica Gaynes…maybe I’ll look her up another time). You may also know him as Eric Antonio from “The Wonder Years”
Where He At Now: After “Wild and Crazy Kids,” Jeffcoat went on to achieve some fame on his own. He first attended the University of Cal-Irvine, and then he was a character on soap opera “One Life to Live” from 1997 to 2001. He remains close friends with Omar Gooding, and they host a “Wild And Crazy Kids” reunion every year together, complete with Dizzy Bat Home Run Derby. BALLER!!! Can I get an invite my man?! As recent as this year, he has appeared on “CSI:NY” and also has recent appearances in shows like Bones, Shark, and Desperate Housewives. You may not recognize him though, he no longer has the trademark blonde hair.
