Life and career

Almost nothing is known about the life and carreer of Joe Torres. He did not continue acting after the end of the TV series. Neither did he stay in contact with the other regular cast members.

In 2004, unconfirmed rumors arose that Joe Torres had died from liver disease. Other rumors identified him with a Toyota car salesman in South Jersey based on a photo (see above) available on the shop's website. Still other rumors said he was spotted at a Tavern in Tucson.

There have been reported sightings of Torres at The World Famous Golden Nugget Tavern in Tucson, Arizona. A Tumblr user contacted a member of the tavern, to which the employee replied that Torres was indeed 'alive and well'. [1]

None of these rumors could be confirmed, and the current whereabouts of Joe Torres remain unknown. He was the only regular cast member of Hey Dude who was not present in any of the cast reunions that took place in 2014, the 25th anniversary of the show's start on TV.
