兰德以在电视节目上播放高飞的油腻器安德鲁 “Squiggy” Squiggman 而闻名。
David L. Lander, the actor best known for portraying the character of ‘Squiggy’ on the popular 1970s ABC sitcom “Laverne & Shirley,” has passed away at age 73 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.
Lander died in Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 4, “surrounded by his wife, daughter and son-in-law,” according to an email from his wife quoted by the Associated Press: “It was very peaceful,” Kathy Lander said. “He had a tough battle with MS for 37 years and he persevered like no one I have ever seen, and it taught me a great deal about the important things of life.”
Lander partnered with actor Michael McKean to create and play the characters of “Lenny” and “Squiggy” — Andrew “Squiggy” Squiggman and Lenny Kosnowski — friends of the titular characters Laverne DeFazio (portrayed by Penny Marshall) and Shirley Feeney (portrayed by Cindy Williams), in the popular 1976-83 ABC television comedy “Laverne & Shirley”:
