90s Star 'Parker Lewis'

Gimp On Aisle 4

3/29/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who played Parker Lewis in the 90s sitcom "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" is slowly piecing his old life together after a near-death boating accident left him with a shattered leg ... starting with a casual trip to the grocery store.

The grocery run pic was snapped earlier this month -- and 41-year-old Corin Nemec tells TMZ, getting back into his old swing of things is really tough, especially in a wheelchair ... which he'll be stuck in for at least four more months.

And to add insult to injury, Nemec tells us, he's already had his first embarrassing moment -- after his motorized cart stalled out at the supermarket ... and he was stuck in the aisle, yelling for help.

As we reported, Nemec nearly died in the January accident in Belize, while filming “Poseidon Rex." Nemec was riding on a Coast Guard vessel when it crashed into a barge ... breaking his femur in 3 places.

Nemec's making a solid recovery ... but says if he doesn't heal to his doc's satisfaction, he'll have to undergo bone grafting surgery.

Fun times.

Glad to see he's getting better. Parker Lewis is classic and Corin Nemic is a great comedic actor who deserves more high profile roles. Him and David Faustino have made some pretty decent buddy flicks ala The Two Coreys. Parker Lewis fans should check them out starting with 'Killer Bud'. Wish him the best!

That is a ridiculous and offensive headline. Especially when he's suffered an injury and in recovery. Horrible.

Report this story to any disabled organization you choose. I did.

I'm offended by TMZ's use of the word "Gimp" in this very sad waste of space on your website.

Are you folks so desperate to keep a high profile in the world of sensationalistic garbage that you're unafraid of stooping to new lows?

It's not acceptable to call people names or demean them for personal gain or to attract more eyeballs to your worthless site. What are you teaching the kids who come to this site?

It's not "cool," and should hold yourself to a higher standard.

this guy was good as Richard Speck but sucked as Ted Bundy - whoever wrote that one didn't read any of the books.

Everybody knows that Harold Lauder ****tered his leg years ago riding a motorcycle. Randall Flagg did it to him. Don't mess with the Dark Man; The Walkin' Dude.....

I had the biggest crush on Corin Nemec during Parker Lewis and his stint on Stargate, till I found out he was into Scientology. Still like the guy though. Good actor.

It's ok for you to call a guy who's been in an accident a gimp yet you censor the word fa66ot on the the Sean Penn story? TMZ if you're gonna attack the handicapped then attack the fa6s too, oh I forgot you guys are a bunch fa66ot as coksuckers.

"Gimp in aisle 4", go **** yourself TMZ. That's right up there with saying "N*gger in Aisle 4" if it was a black guy.

Twisted silk or cotton with cord or wire running through it, used chiefly in upholstery.
offensive. A physically handicapped or lame person.

offensive. Limp; hobble: "she gimped around".
