Dennis Cole Busted. Wait -- Who's Dennis Cole?

11/2/2007 6:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dennis Cole was busted in Florida yesterday. Who?
Dennis Cole
The former husband of "Charlie's Angels" star and K-Mart shmata seller Jaclyn Smith had a major run-in with Fort Lauderdale Police, who went to Cole's home to serve him with a domestic violence injunction -- but police say he locked himself in a room. Cops were eventually able to open the door -- and Cole was promptly arrested on one count of obstructing justice. He was released on $100 bond early Friday.

It's unlikely that you remember Cole for his roles on "Fantasy Island" and "Murder She Wrote." Cole was married to Smith for almost three years.

His only child, Joey, was murdered during a robbery attempt in 1991. The case was never solved. So sad.

His son, Joe Cole, was the author of Planet Joe and best friend of Henry Rollins. He was an amazing guy whose untimely death was the inspiration of Sonic Youth's JC. He was brutally murdered in 1991 and his senseless murder is still unsolved. Dennis Cole was most recently working as a real estate agent and investor in Florida. Very hard times have fallen on the Florida real estate market in the last 2 years. Joe Cole was the best thing this guy ever had anything to do with and it's no wonder he looks so tragic!

How about you also report that the poor man's son was brutally murdered, a crime that remains unsolved, and from which he's never recovered. He may not have been a mega-star and may not have any note-worthy roles behind him but then again, neither does Paris Whoreton and look at the coverage she gets.

I remember him. He used to be good looking, with chiseled features. He did a lot of episodic tv in the "Magnum PI" type of macho guy mold. Those mug shots are never flattering anyway, in all fairness. Just go to the smoking gum website and view some of those celebrity mugshots. Pretty bad.

I meant to write smoking gun, not gum. PS: He was a model before he was an actor..

Did he use to play on 'The Young & The Restless" around the same time as David Hasslehoff?

Remember him well from 60's and 70's TV shows. He was also on the cover of every gossip magazine around 1971. Only the young would not know who he is (was). He used to be a hunk. Hard to recognize now.
Warning to young ones — this will happen to you when you hit 50. You'll be looking at aged photos of stars you thought everyone knew (Zac Efron, Britney, Lindsey, etc.). In the year 2030, your kids will be saying "Dude, who's that old F@@&^?"

jimmy sez- My how the petals have fallen off the rose. We all remember what a hottie he was back then. I bet him and Jackie had some good sexual times. Thanks Harvey, I haven't heard about this guy since the early 80's. Find Lee Majors 4 me.
