Taylor Negron passes away aged 57

It is with sadness that Cult Faction must report that actor and comedian Taylor Negron has died after a long battle with cancer at the age of 57.

His cousin Chuck Negron said in a video released Saturday:

I want to inform you that my cousin Taylor Negron has just passed away,” Chuck Negron said in the video. “His mother, his brother Alex and my brother’s wife Renee were all there with him. May he rest in peace.”

The California native got his first TV role in 1982 playing a love-struck, dancing intern in the soap opera satire, Young Doctors in Love. Negron also made a renowned appearance in the cult classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High delivering pizza to Spicol, played by Sean Penn.

Negron played the villain in the movie The Last Boy Scout starring Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans. Negron also went on to play a role in a myriad of films like Angels in the Outfield, Punchline, and Stuart Little.

In 2008, Negron wrote The Unbearable Lightness of Being Taylor Negron- A Fusion of Story and Song. The show went on to debut at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival and played in the 2009 Best of New York Solo Festival.
