RIP: Taylor Negron, Pizza Guy in 'Fast Times,' Is Dead at 57

Saddened to learn that actor/comedian Taylor Negron -- aka Mr. Pizza Guy in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" -- just died after a long battle with cancer. Deadline has a nice remembrance HERE of the man who made "our time" a little bit more fun.

Taylor Negron, an amazing comedian, writer, poet, actor has passed away. I remember being invited for luncheon at his house in the Hollywood Hills when I lived in LA and it felt like I was transported into a land of stories and afternoon drinking and Hollywood glamour that was reserved for other people. I will miss you Taylor, Your spirit is ever present as is your goodness. Thanks for sharing it with the world. xx ‪#‎RIP‬

Please! He was Julio from Easy Money not just a nameless pizza guy. He was the greasy guy who goes after-- and marries-- Rodney Dangerfield's virgin daughter (played by Jennifer Jason Leigh). What a tacky, poor white trash piece of gold. I LOVED that movie!
