RIP: Gary Coleman

TV News | By on May 28th, 2010

“What’choo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?” TV Actor Gary Coleman has passed away at the age of 42. This morning it was being reported that Gary Coleman was put on life support and suffered an inter-cranial hemorrhage. I knew it wasn’t going to be good news after hearing that. Sadly, he passed away around noon today. I loved Diff’rent Strokes growing up and watch it until the end. I even like watching it in syndication as well. Diff’rent Strokes is what Gary Coleman will be remembered for, but he was also in a few movies (Jimmy The Kid, On the Right Track, Dirty Work) and made TV appearances in Buck Rogers, Married With Children, Unhappily Ever After and recently in Penn & Teller: Bullshit. He even had an animated show called…”The Gary Coleman Show.” Sad news to start off the holiday weekend. Watch some videos after the jump:

(CNN) — Former child star Gary Coleman, who rose to fame as the wisecracking youngster Arnold Jackson on the TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” but grew up to grapple with a troubled adulthood, has died. He was 42.

Coleman died of a brain hemorrhage at a Provo, Utah, hospital, Friday afternoon, according to a hospital spokeswoman. The actor fell ill at his Santaquin, Utah, home Wednesday evening and was rushed by ambulance to a hospital, Coleman’s spokesman had said in a statement earlier Friday.

He was then taken to another hospital — Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo — later Wednesday night.
