Remember little cute red haired Sam from “Different Strokes?” Those adorable southern dances and the thunder he stole from Gary Coleman were marks of brilliance. But what happened to the little fellow? His real name is Danny Cooksey.
You might remember him in the movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day as a punked out 14 year old which is pretty representative of his real life. Other than playing the complete dick Budnick on “Salute Your Shorts” Cooksey spends his time still combing his long hair and heavy metaling it up with various bands (including one formed by Steve Vai).
Funny, I always just assumed he sat around masturbating to old episodes of Different Strokes (hopefully not the infamous child molesting one with Dudley, Arnold and the man with the bicycle store). Cooksey also does voice overs for Cartoons.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
