J. Michael Arnoldi is a legend in Hollywood, working for many years in the paparazzi industry. But, as a child, he went by the stage name Quinn Smith and played one of the most memorable characters in ‘Bad News Bears.’
As a kid, Arnoldi played ‘Timmy Lupus’ in the classic movie, which featured a former minor leaguer (Morris Buttermaker) as a lazy, beer-drinking pool cleaner who ends up coaching a kids baseball team. Lupus, the shyest kid on the team ends up being one of the mascots of the team’s unlikely success. If you haven’t seen it, rent it tonight!

We’re told the ceremony was packed with celebrities including, Donna D’Errico (Baywatch), Lorenzo Lamas (Renegade), James Maslow (Big Time Rush), Lou Pizarro (Operation Repo), and even a member of the real KISS, Bruce Kulick!
We’re told the former child star even got a video message day of the wedding, from ‘Pretty Little Liars’ star Janel Parrish, wishing the couple well on their big day. The actress reminded the couple age is just a number, as Jessica (who is a leading publicist at JMA PR) is just 23-years-old.
Our sources say, J. Michael proposed to his new wife on September 4th, and that day ‘Big Time Rush’ star James Maslow sent her a video wishing a happy birthday. Plus, he joking pressed the young lady to say yes to him on the marriage proposal. This is J. Michael & Jessica’s first marriage.
As you can see, the Gene Simmons impersonator was decked out in full costume, as the couple is both huge KISS fans. During the ceremony, Jessica was walked down the aisle by Elvis Presley, and the rest is Vegas history.
