Sending him our best wishes!
Varsity Blues actor Ron Lester is reportedly hospitalized and in critical condition in Dallas.
According to TMZ, the 45-year-old had liver and kidney issues, and has been in the hospital for the past four months, but his health has unfortunately not been improving.
Lester played the lovable Billy Bob in Varsity Blues alongside James van der Beek and Paul Walker, and also appeared in Freaks and Geeks and played a football player in the TV series Popular.
The actor had problems with his weight for most of his life, weighing in at 508 pounds at one point, before undergoing gastric bypass surgery in 2001 and losing 350 pounds.
We really hope he can pull through after this health scare. He's in our thoughts!
