Stephen Furst who played Kent Dorfman (Flounder) in “Animal House” has died. Furst was only 62 and suffered complications from diabetes. “Are you guys playing cards ?” was a great line he had in the film. Of course he was the subject of the film’s greatest line uttered by John Vernon as Dean Wormer, “Fat, Drunk, and Stupid, is no way to go through life son ” RIP Stephen Furst
I hope all the Fathers had a great day.
