LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stephen Furst, who played naive fraternity pledge Flounder in the hit movie "Animal House", has died of complications from diabetes, his family said Saturday. Stephen Furst has passed away, and his family has confirmed the death of this actor. "Rather, enjoy memories of all the times he made you snicker, laugh, or even snort to your own embarrassment. He intensely believed that laughter is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now", the boys wrote.

In his life, Stephen was a spokesperson for both the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association, after having lost a substantial amount of weight to help save his life in the Nineties.


Apart from his famous role in Animal House, Furst was best known for playing Dr. Elliot Axelrod in the 1980s television series St. Additional TV credits included one-and-done programs Have Faith and Misery Loves Company, and appearances on The Jeffersons, CHiPs, Newhart and Scrubs. He also had major rols in Babylon 5, St. Elsewhire, and others, while directing several episodes of Babylon 5, too.

Furst last appeared on screen in 2006's Basilisk: The Serpent King, which he also directed.
