One of our Sweathogs really is missing now.

Robert Hegyes, best known for playing Juan Epstein—one of Gabe Kaplan's "star" pupils—in Welcome Back, Kotter, died this morning after an apparent heart attack, according to New Jersey's Star Ledger. He was 60.

The actor, who also played a detective on the later seasons of Cagney & Lacey, had been in poor health since suffering a previous heart attack a couple of years ago, according to his brother.

Only just came across this Edgar. The IMDB bio and trivia was interesting. Did you know he was a cousin of Jon Bon Jovi AND Mario Lanza?

And that he was neither Puerto Rican or Jewish? Hungarian father, Italian mother.
