Neil Hope, Wheels From Degrassi, Dead at 35

In Memorium

Neil Hope was 35. He played Derek “Wheels” Wheeler on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Degrassi Junior High and The Kids of Degrassi Street.

Neil actually passed away on November 25, 2007, but this was only made public today January 12.  I was a big Degrassi fan, and just last year I wrote about School's Out, when Wheels ended up in jail.

I'll prefer to remember him as a vital member of The Zit Remedy.  Here's The Zit Remedy performing their smash hit, "Everybody Wants Something".
