William Stack is best known as the child actor who regularly appeared on CNC’s “Dance with the Devil”, where he played a young boy molested by his baseball coach. His leap to stardom at the tender age of 8 was followed by a string of commercials and film and television roles. But soon, it all caught up with him. Parties, drugs, arrests. By the time he was 12, he had been fired from the show and soon he was in and out of rehab. Tonight we will take a look at his meteoric rise to fame, his shocking fall from grace, and what the future may hold. Tonight, we will take a look at the dark side of Hollywood, and the possibility of a silver lining.
