Juan Epstein May Have Long Lost Father

Robert Hegyes played Juan Epstein on Welcome Back Kotter
After joking about Juan Epstein's mother all these years, someone finally decided to dig up his long lost father. Welcome Back Kotter stopped production more than twenty years ago, but don't let that bit of trivia stop anyone.

Now come reports of a man in Coober Pedy bearing a striking resemblance to young Epstein. Problem is the guy they're talking about seems to be some kind of meat-fisted, booze guzzling, tree- hugging, branch-slashing freakazoid on a bad "emu dreaming trail" trip.

I don't think this unusual suspect will be signing school excuse notes any time soon.
