Man, does this bring back memories. I was a sophmore in HS (and completely in denial) - i should have known i was gay back then because i followed his brief acting career wanting to catch every possible glimpses of him. And when he died, ......i was sad. I figured all straight guys just wanted to be as handsome as he was and wanted a body like his - oh and his deep masculine voice!
As for the other chap - don't know him.
