'Small Wonder' star desperate to dance
Jerry Supiran campaigning for a 'DWTS' chance to turn his fortunes around
Former "Small Wonder" star Jerry Supiran is hoping a stint on "Dancing With the Stars" will help him turn his fortunes around. The fallen actor, who played Jamie Lawson on the classic '80s sitcom, is campaigning for a spot on the next season of the hit show. And he's convinced the reality show will put him back on his feet after a series of misfortunes.
Supiran tells TMZ.com that at his lowest he spent time living in a homeless shelter after a stripper ex-girlfriend stole his cash. The 39-year-old says, "I'm hoping there will still be interest since people are all about nostalgia these days ... (and) hopefully producers will give me a chance."
Son shouldn't hold his breath. The show is called Dancing with the Stars and as it is, they already play pretty fast and loose with the word "Stars".
Small Wonder was a creepy show and this kid wasn't even a star in the 80's.
I'm sorry he had questionable taste in girlfriends and now is pennyless. But he needs to suck it up and get himself a job.
Dancing with the Stars isn't going to jumpstart a career that was not even there to begin with.
