Gary Coleman Passes Away at 42

Actor Gary Coleman has passed away at age 42, after suffering suffering an intracranial brain hemmorhage, according to his wife, Shannon. Coleman was in critical condition at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, after falling and injuring his head. His brother-in-law called 911 after discovering him. [RadarOnline]

Coleman had had two kidney transplants and was prone to seizures. He’s been hospitalized twice this year for seizures — once during a TV interview taping. He’s probably best known for his role as the short, lovable Arnold Jackson in Diff’rent Strokes, and his trademark saying, “Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?,” when talking to his TV brother Willis Jackson, played by Todd Bridges. The cast of the show has been plagued by misfortune. Bridges has been arrested once. Co-star Dano Plato, who played Kimberly Drummond, committed suicide by drug overdose on May 8, 1999. Her son, Tyler Lambert, followed her nearly 11 years to the day, on May 6, 2010, taking his life with a shotgun after a drinking binge.
