Whatever happened to him?

I wonder why he left the show after the first episode?

Anyone know?

Remember just preceding the beginning of the climactic scene with the Daytona? Wheeler was arrested for selling out to Calderone and likely given a stiff prison sentence.

The actor however did come back in a later episode as a different character, as we have seen several other times in MV.

Yes, I remember when he got arrested in front of his wife and kids on Brothers Keeper,  i don't remember seeing him in later episodes.    Which ones was it?

  I'll go on NBC.COM and look for them!

But why did the actor leave? I liked his role.

Smitrovich came back as DEA in Prodigal Son. I think it was implied that Wheeler was sent away to the big house so we don't see him again.

Oooh!  I'll have to look at that episode.  I probably didn't pay attention.

Yeah, Smitrovich came back as DEA Agent Burr. I think he's even introduced with that name at the beginning of his scene. So Scott Wheeler didn't somehow get promoted to a job at the DEA... in complete disregard of his crimes of receiving bribes and divulging classified police information... :p

Speaking of Prodigal Son, it actually took me many years to realize that Miguel Pinero came back as Esteban Revilla... I just always wondered when I saw his name on the screen just who he was playing... :)

I was shocked when I saw that too.. like what? Calderone leads the Revilla's?  Did they spend so much on Miami and the clothing and other things, their acting budget was really low? :)

A few of the actors came back such as Dennis Farina at the end of the show to wrap up old stories in Season 5 - sure would have been good to see Smitrovich back as Wheeler.

He is a fine actor:hippie:
