The actor, 62, also played the lovable Pee-wee Herman on Pee-wee’s Playhouse from 1986 to 1990.

Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Amanda Bynes has been released from the facility where she had been on a psychiatric hold, a source told ABC News.

With that, the former child star, whose mother was also recently granted conservatorship over her finances, was free to go.

Bynes, 28, was hospitalized earlier this month after displaying erratic behavior, including going on a worrisome Twitter rant against her father. The 72-hour hold was extended twice before ...Read more
