    Stand up comedian and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” actor Taylor Negron died Saturday after a long battle with cancer . He was 57.

    Negron’s cousin Chuck Negron of the ’70s band “Three Dog Night” broke the news with the release of an online video, Deadline reported.

    “I want to inform you that my cousin Taylor Negron just passed away,” the musician said. “His mother, his brother Alex and my brother Rene and his wife Julie were all there with him.”

    Born in Glendale, Calif., Negron studied with Lee Strasberg and even had a private comedy seminar with Lucille Ball. He interned for the comic legend when she was 68 and he was just 19, Negron said in an interview with KCET last year.

    After playing bit parts, he made his full-film acting debut in the 1982 soap satire “Young Doctors in Love” and worked steadily in television and film over the next three decades, acquiring memorable roles in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “Easy Money” and “The Last Boy Scout,” according to his IMDb.com bio.

    And Bio-Dome, I think. He's one of those guys you see a lot but have no clue who the fuck they are. Or were. Whatever.

    Also, he's Elaine's hair stylist in the "B.O." episode of Seinfeld. I'm not sure that's worth a damn though...

    He was such a nice guy. I met him in 2012 and we chatted for about 45 minutes.
    A truly funny man.
    RIP. :(
