Gary Coleman


Sad news today...

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 certainly lived an interesting life and, in the 70's and 80's, was a worldwide star. It's unfortunate that his later years were filled with such drama and strife.

The kids on that show really had a tough time after it was cancelled...
