On what I hope to be weekly (or maybe even daily) segment is what I call ‘What Happened to.’ Sometimes I might have the story and sometimes I am just looking for it but either way I want to know what happened to the actors and actresses that shaped me into the person I am today. No better way to start then Casey Ellison. Personally, I thought he was the best actor on the show next to Brandon. This kid was involved in two of the most pivotal episodes Punky aired. The first being that weird two part episode where the gang was trapped in some cave or some shit. And I remember a huge spider playing a role and Allen. The other being my favorite episode – the cheating epsiode. Remember poor Allen couldn’t catch a break so he wrote the answers all over his pale body and dragged Punky into his web of destruction.
I did a little IMDB.com research and looks like he made a brief little run after his Punky stint but it started to fizzle real quick and he was done by 1991. However I scrolled down further and noticed that he was the fucking electrician for over 17 movies and shows. You know one day he got cut from his 9th straight to-home-video horror movie and was like, “hey I know you won’t let me act in your film but I am real good with wires and shit – can I just hang around the set, I’ll handle the wiring and lighting and you give me some love on the credits? I really need this man!” And Casey Ellison the electrician was born.
