Max Wright

Max Wright is an actor (born August 2, 1943) who has appeared in several sitcoms and movies during his career. Wright has made appearances in TV shows such as WKRP in Cincinnati, was a regular cast member in ALF, Misfits of Science, Buffalo Bill, The Norm Show, and appeared in the first two seasons of the popular sitcom Friends, as Terry, the manager of Central Perk. He has also appeared in movies such as Soul Man and the made-for-TV adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand.

Wright is best known for his role as role as Willie Tanner on the late-1980s hit sitcom ALF where he played the father in a family that took in and adopted an alien who happened to crash land into his garage. Wright's character on the show was very wholesome, and the entire show was oriented toward families and kids. It was intended to be a sitcom that the whole family could watch.

To the casual observer Wright appeared to have it all. He had what appeared to be a happy marriage and a successful acting career. Wright, however, was hiding a dark secret - a penchant for smoking crack and having unprotected sex with homeless men. Surprisingly, the supermarket tabloid The National Enquirer was the news source that blew the cover off of Max Wright's hedonistic and dangerous lifestyle.

The National Enquirer posted an expose on Wright after acquiring homemade sex tapes showing Wright having smoking crack and having gay sex with a random homeless man he had literally just met. In one of the videos Max is shown having a discussion with his gay lover and a homeless man regarding the best way to smoke crack and then later telling him lover that the homeless man with whom he just had sex was "hot."

Wright's former gay lover said:

"His life was so out of control that he didn't care about exposure to AIDS.
...
We would meet twice a week and pick up homeless men, take them home and pay them $100 for sex.

Max had unprotected sex with me and with the homeless guys. And he did drugs with me and the homeless men.

Max even agreed to let me film two gay sex videos with him. They're both with homeless men we picked up on the street!"

Wright was also arrested in 2000 and in 2003 for drunken driving. For all of the reasons discussed above, Max Wright is one washed-up celebrity!

I don't see the big deal. Don't most of us do this for a period during our lives?

Sound like Max and Screech should get together and market their own Gay Porn tape! I too have occasionally picked up random bums for a good bumming, but always wear protection. I'm surprised that a nerd like Max Wright could be such a blatant bug chaser.

Hopefully at some point I'll get together with him, Screech and my garbage men and then we'll give the tabloids something to talk about!

This is my favorite response to all this washed up celebrity business. By far!

I am a professional bartender and at times I get lucky and work some pretty big celebrity parties. Well, about 5 years ago I got to do a who's who Hollywood director, producer and writer party. Max Wright's story of how he was on top of the world and lost it all. I was working the bar and apparently a couple of Hollywood big wigs kept slamming shots and were trading these Hollywood horror stories. Apparently, Barry Williams went partying with Max Wright and they got a hotel room and Barry passed out. Well, when he woke up Max Wright was mounting Barry and had an elaborate video set-up and was camcording the whole sexual escapade. Barry got pissed off after Max Wright finished off on Barry's back. Well, old Max fired up his crack pipe and shared it with Barry and calmed him down so guess what Barry passed out again. Well, Barry wakes up again and now there is a homeless guy mounting him from behind with Max Wright mounting the homeless guy in some crazy daisy-chain with Barry as the bottom man and the homeless guy in the middle. Barry gets pissed and starts yelling at Max Wright, but old Max says, "It's o.k. he's a former 70's gay porn star named Ramon." So the homeless guy finishes off in Barry. Then Max Wright finishes off in Barry's face for a video money shot. Well, the video ended there because Barry ran out of the hotel room with his pants around his ankles screaming at Max and Ramon that he was not a "crack whore." Now the one Hollywood big wig said the videotape of the whole ordeal had been uploaded to the internet. The Hollywood big wig said that he saw a crude copy of the videotape for the first time at a party hosted by Richard Simmons the exercise guru years ago. That was all I heard then they both stumbled out to the pool and that was it. I have not watched the Brady Bunch T.V. show since that party I worked.

I dunno what it is about this fugly 4-eyed frogface, but he gets my balls workin' overtime! Maybe I'm jealous of all the attention he gave to ALF (he's a puppet, you dumb old fucknut!) but I've wanted him to vigorously rub ME behind my ears while he tries to conceal his withered boner! I'd do him in the ass and shoot him to Cincinnati! Max Wright: you are the hunk wet dreams are made of!

Those pictures only prove what a refined and upstanding gentleman Max Wright is.
I mean, the usual debauchery normally associated with crack smoking is nowhere to be seen.
Whenever I smoke crack, fighting and rape are the least of the worries.
Those guys make a crack den look like a regular cigar lounge.
Hey Max, if you read this;
I miss you, last time I saw you was in Pasadena. Remember that big AA speaker meeting?

Sad to know what he is become now.I like to watch Alf drama series and the whole cast acting in the drama. I wish he can change back to what he once use to be.

Once you smoke crack, you never go back.

I know the guy who is kissing Max Wright, lets call him (Mr.X) because he asked me not to say his name. So actually Mr.X is not kissing him they are blowing smoke into each others mouths. Mr.X and I used to turn tricks together, & Mr.X & I had Max Wright over one night and Max was in a Wig and a corset, and high heels, he was on his knees sucking and having a great time. Nothing wrong with consenting adults getting paid for sex and getting high. max Wright should have never been crucified over this. I have been a hooker for over 18 years, and this is nothing. Normally I would not say anything about famous persons who I tricked with, but since this is already out I thought why not. I hope Max makes a comeback someday.
Well that's my part. Max was a great customer, & Mr.X was a great partner.

Regards

What is your hard core obsession with this people and bieng accused of having gay affairs? Almost every article I read about a male here had one thing or another related to gay behavior. I dont know if you are in the closet and obsessed with gays or if you are out and also obsessed with gays. Or if you just want to say that bieng gay signals the fact that you are washed up. Either way its ocming off as incradibly bias and just plain stupid. You need to lay off the gay reports.

Hollywood literally breeds filth like Max Wright, thats why Hollywood (and Max Wright) must be destroyed with malice-a-fore-thought and extreme prejudice.

Hey dillenger.your a lieing sack of shit.u never did anything of such.cause I know who u are

Anonymous said...

He is not dead and I dunno about that "activity" of his past but he still worked until 2010. Dunno about these days.
Whatever people say that their childhood is crushed I think is silly. One thing is the person and another is the artist. Truth is that he wasnt harming anyone but himself. There are even people saying that the one in the video and pictures isnt even him, so up to these days it has not been verified as true. The Inquirer is the worst place to try to find the 'truth'. How many times they have paid random people to just throw garbage on others and even photoshoped pictures in the past!.
So I will give it my doubt.

Gay sex and crack are only bad if your famous. Otherwise no one cares. Heck creeps old fruitcakes can get married in several states now, that proves that its okay. Deal with that haters!

Who cares he is human.

The details about the video sound crazy. I'd love to see it out of curiosity.

Rumor has it that Max made the LA Bloods millionaires due to his nose candy addiction. The Bloods gang members always referred to him as "That crack snorting cracka from Alf". Eventually he was given the nickname "ALF Cracka".

I don't see what the big hoopla is. The only thing that is of some concern is the fact that he is having sex with people he picks up on the street because he doesn't know ANYTHING about these guys. AND when you're high you don't really think about these things.
This guy needed help and not have his private life stamped all over a magazine for us to look at. All I see is sex with drugs between 3 consenting adults. The rest off the stuff is something that ONLY Wright should decide if it's bad for him or not.

I'm actually curious and want to watch the video. Lol
