Gangs & Outlaws

Cast of the FOX series THE OUTSIDERSThe Greasers - Group of lower-class youths from Walker Ridge High School in 1966 Tulsa, Oklahoma who occasionally had run-ins with affluent kids called the "Socs" (short for "Socials") on the short-lived hour-long teen drama THE OUTSIDERS/FOX/1990.

The Greasers included Darrel Curtis (Boyd Kestner), a 19-year-old carpenter saddled with the responsibility of raising his younger brothers after their parents death; Soda Pop Curtis (Rodney Harvey) a short-tempered 17-year-old high school dropout who was coming of age; and Ponyboy Curtis (Jay R. Ferguson), an aspiring 15-year-old writer. Ponyboy Curtis provides the  narration for the series.

Other Greaser friends included Tim Shepherd (Robert Rusler), Two-Bit Matthews (David Arquette), and Steve Randle (Harold Pruett). The Greasers hangout was a gas station/bar owned by Buck Merrill (Billy Bob Thornton).

TRIVIA NOTE: The series is based on the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola motion picture The Outsiders which was inspired by the 1967 novel by S.E. Hinton. The TV program continues the storyline of the movie characters.
