EXCLUSIVE

0207-tmz-jerry-supiran-today
Jerry Supiran -- the guy who played V.I.C.I.'s wholesome brother Jamie Lawson on the classic sitcom "Small Wonder" -- says he's ready to be famous again ... and now he's officially campaigning for a spot on the next season of "Dancing with the Stars."
 
Jerry ... (how do we put this delicately?) ... has "changed" a lot since his younger days after falling on some pretty hard times.

In fact, Supiran says he spent time living in a homeless shelter after a stripper ex-girlfriend stole his trust fund money. 

But now, at 39 years old ... and after various restaurant jobs ... Supiran tells TMZ he wants to make a TV comeback and thinks he would be a perfect fit for "Dancing."

"I'm hoping there will still be interest since people are all about nostalgia these days ... hopefully producers will give me a chance."

Supiran says he hasn't heard back from the show ... yet ... but if he does make it, he's GOTTA DO THE ROBOT!!!!!!

He was a cute kid. Now he looks like he partied HARD with drug & alcohol. There will be no DWTS and no Hollywood come back. Clean yourself up and find a real job.

TMZ, why do you waste our time with stories like this?
.
Has it come to the point where you don't even bother to go and try to find real news or gossip? Do all these people Harvey hired just sit around and fix their makeup for the TV show? You put crap like "EXCLUSIVE at the top of your stories, but most of the time they are exclusives because no other Web site really gives a crap or they are just pictures that you bought.
.
This EXCLUSIVE is probably the lowest you've gotten yet. I won't say rock bottom, because like Lindsay Lohan, it seems you find new lows almost every day now.
.
This is a joke.

Hum.. Lets see... Few if anybody remembers him, he is physically scary, his moment of fame passed years ago, he needs $$$, he is old news, nobody knows him... nobody wants to know him.. OH YES!! he will be perfect and the producers will be giving him a call any moment!

Dancing with the Stars should get Donna Pescow for their show. Wouldn't be surprised if they haven't been trying to get her for some time.

Not so fast! first I want Lawson to have a dance off with Butch Patrick aka Eddie Munster, then the winner will go against Leif Garrett then the winner of that dance off will go against the one and only Corey Feldman! It will kind of be a round robin hasbeen dance off to see who goes on the show
