I've got some sad news to share with all of you. Gary Coleman has passed away at the age of 42. Coleman is best known for his role as in the classic 80's TV series Different Strokes, but he's also appeared in a few other films such as but has appeared in a few movies, including On The Right Track, Jimmy The Kid, Fox Hunt, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Church Ball, An American Carol, and most recently Midgets vs. Mascots.

According to Radar, Coleman has been in a hospital in Utah since Wednesday, May 26th, after he suffered what his family called “a serious medical problem.” Turned out Coleman suffered an intracranial hemorrhage, and slipped into a coma. He was pulled off life support on Friday morning.

I hate delivering news like this. I grew up watching Different Strokes. It was one of my favorite TV shows growing up. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
