'Grease' Actor Jeff Conaway Dead at 60

Actor Jeff Conaway, best known for his role as Kenickie in "Grease" and as Bobby Wheeler on "Taxi," died Friday, several weeks after he was found unconscious in his L.A. area home, TMZ reports. He was 60.


Conaway fell into a coma after an overdose of painkillers earlier this month, and doctors were unable to revive him.

The actor's struggle with drugs was featured in his appearance on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" in 2008.
