The parents of Andrew Koenig, the missing actor best known for his role as Boner on Growing Pains, have spoken to TMZ about walking off the set of Larry King Live last night without explanation.

Andrew’s father Walter Koenig (who played Chekov in multiple Star Trek projects and also appeared in a recurring role on Babylon 5) told the website that they felt it was “disrespectful” to repeatedly push back their interview in order to cover yesterday’s tragedy at SeaWorld, and that King did not give them “enough time to do credit to what we had to say.”
