The tag line of the original 1982 TV series "Fame" promised "I'm going to live forever!" Co-star Carlo Imperato's career has not quite borne out those words, but he still belongs to that select group of actors who have been a part of an iconic small screen ensemble. He was student Danny Amatullo, and at one point during the show's run, became engaged to co-star and fellow on-screen student Nia Peeples. A spinoff of the 1980 movie of the same name, the show was a pop culture phenomenon and tapped into many of the success factors that later powered "American Idol." Amatullo, like a number of his "Fame" co-stars," has done very little since. One of his few high-profile returns to the small screen occurred during the 1995-1996 season of another NBC smash hit, "Friends." He appeared as Roy in the episode titled "The One with the Birth." He also appeared on both the original "Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour" game show and the subsequent redo hosted by John Davidson, "The New Hollywood Squares."
