  • Linda says:

    Oh, Bonsall. YOU WERE SO CUTE.

  • Sars says:

    Can't sing worth a damn, though. Heh.

  • Liz says:

    I assume those are lip piercings, but damn if Bonsall doesn't look like he has fangs.

  • Elena says:

    Why is Bonsall wearing vampire teeth in his mug shot? I feel like there's a whole other story we're not being told, there.

  • Drew says:

    I hope his girlfriend at least got in a good tug at that ridiculous lip ring I saw him wearing in that VH1 "100 Child Stars All Grown Up" coundown last year…

  • sarz says:

    Took me a minute to realise that Bonsall hasn't turned into a Vampire and just has two ridiculous lip piercings.

  • Natalie says:

    Oh, Brian Bonsall. From cute to tragic…

    I officially feel old now.

  • Nutty Goodness says:

    I'm so happy my parents never got me into showbiz.

  • Angie says:

    As soon as I heard that Bonsall story, I heard you and Wing talking about his DUI with the scrambling up the stack of phone books to be all "Plenty!" when the cop asked how much he'd had to drink. And then I was like, "Awesome, we'll get a new GBC from this." I can't decide if that's sad or awesome that this was my thought process.

  • Nomie says:

    Neck tattoos are like a giant blinking warning sign. What the hell is that thing, a caterpillar?

  • Emily says:

    Totally separated at birth.

  • Erin says:

    I think he misses his sharp Klingon teeth. Maybe that's what's up with the piercings that look like freakin' fangs?

  • Michelle says:

    The guy who pumps my gas sure does get around.

  • KAB says:

    I would say "awesome" as I had the exact same thought! He looks like he's making every possible effort not to be cute little Brian Bonsall from Family Ties. Neck tattoo, lip piercings, shaved head…mission accomplished, kiddo.

  • Randy's Girl says:

    Wait a sec; have we ever actually seen the two together?
