In the late 1970's, David Naughton was seen by just about every baby boomer in America as the song and dance spokesman for Dr. Pepper. It was almost impossible during that time period not to know the "be a pepper" song which associated him with the famous soft drink.
It wasn't until 1981 that the public saw he could act when he had the starring role in the John Landis classic, An American Werewolf in London. This was followed by the less successful Hot Dog...the Movie and a couple of short-lived television series, At Ease and My Sister Sam.
David Naughton is still working as an actor, but usually in small roles that go unnoticed. This is a shame for he has the charm for a romantic comedy, the singing and dancing skills for a musical, and the talent to carry a more serious piece. I guess until Hollywood opens her eyes, he will just have to settle for Not Very Famous...but should be.
