Jeff Conaway left out of Emmy 'In Memoriam' segment

jeff-conaway.jpgApparently "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn merited inclusion in the "In Memoriam" segment of Sunday's Emmy Awards broadcast, but Jeff Conaway -- who spent four years as a regular on ABC's "Taxi" and appeared on countless other shows over the past three decades  -- did not.

The actor, reports Us Weekly, was left out of the annual montage which honors stars who passed away in the previous 12 months. Conaway, who battled drug addiction for several years, passed away in May at age 60 from complications related to pneumonia and sepsis.

Conaway is also remembered for his iconic role as Kenickie in the 1978 big screen version of "Grease." In 2008, he also appeared on VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
