    His show was basically 'Quantum Leap' for kids.
    His surname was hard to pronounce (Mickey G usually sufficed with friends).
    His own CBS Saturday morning show, 'Bailey Kipper's P.O.V.' only lasted 13 episodes.
    He shot 'Jersey' over a two-year period, between 1999-2001, but new episodes aired until 2004.

    He was a Disney star who never pursued a music career.
    He looked like Bill and Judy Miller's son Brian on Still Standing.
    He retired from acting in his late teens, giving up on what would have been a very promising career. He came of as a more natural than many of his 'Jersey' cast-mates.
    After his retirement, he worked in commercial and residential real estate for several years.
    He suffered from hypertension and diverticulitis, which is an inflammation of the digestive track.
    A GoFundMe page was set up to meet the costs of his burial and funeral service.
    Over $9,000 were raised in the first few hours. The largest donation came from an unknown donor who signed his name 'Shia L' (draw your own conclusions).
