Question: Please settle a dispute for me. Was Brad Pitt ever on the television show Growing Pains? I say no but my boyfriend insists that he was. Thank you. — Sarah Hesketh

Televisionary: Ah, love and arguments — the world could turn on those elements alone.

I was all prepared to tell you how wrong your beau is and point out that he's probably thinking of fellow hunky guy Leonardo DiCaprio, who joined the show's cast in its last season. As it turns out, though, he's right.

Mr. Pitt put in a guest appearance on the show in 1985 and it wasn't his only series TV work. He also showed up in Dallas, 21 Jump Street, Head of the Class and thirtysomething, which brings this column full circle and allows me to stop annoying my neighbors with this damnable keyboard tapping of mine.
