He was good. His personal life intervened and goodbye. So goes the life of any actor, actress, even no-name personality making it big in this life. Unless you realize its this same bane which become a boon some grab hold of and use to reach acclaim like Kim Kardashian who we don't even know what she did before her video showed up. They have to actively leave the attention, sometimes with alot of effort, like Paris Hilton and at which point society's short memory forgets them and they loose any chance of getting it back.
