Real life 1970s teen heartthrob Leif Garret (puke!) played this pop star and his twin brother Michael in the My Teenage Idol Is Missing episode of comic book-based TV adventure drama, Wonder Woman (first aired 22 Sept. 1978). Lane gets kidnapped and his ransomed to his manager Ripley (Michael Lerner) for a cool 2 mil. But his twin brother Michael (sorta working with the kidnappers), is sent to take his place so no one will suspect except the manager, who knows. But the money drop gets interrupted by Wonder Woman, and the kidnapper reneges, and a desperate Ripley puts Mike on stage to lip sync. In a pre-Milli Vanilli moment, the crowd catches on and boos him! Then Mike ditches the lip-syncing, sings on his own, and the crowd loves him! Too bad that didn't work for Milli Vanilli. Anyhoo, Wonder Woman frees Lane and he and Michael (a mysteriously unindicted co-conspirator, if you ask me) form an act together.
