SNL Star Suicide

Former actor and comedian Charles Rocket, who was a cast member on one of the m0st critically reviled casts of Saturday Night Live, apparently has committed suicide.

He also played roles in an assortment of movies and TV series, but gained notoriety for uttering an obscenity live on SNL- which eventually got him shitcanned.

Rocket, 56, whose real name was Charles Claverie, was found dead in a field, with his throat cut, near his home in Connecticut on October 7.

1 other geekspeak:

  • I'm not holding my breath to see the Charles Rocket tribute segment on the next SNL anniversary special. He now joins Danitra Vance as a dead SNL cast member no one remembers.

    Personally, I'll always remember Rocket as the bad guy on "Max Headroom." But then, I'm a big geek.
