Gary Coleman, 42.

Had an odd life by all accounts.

I felt I was too old to get Different Strokes at the time, but in hindsight it was a good show, well written and beautifully played.

Or maybe I don't know what I'm talkin' 'bout, Willis :|

Either way, 42!?! :( RIP Gary, and condolences to his family etc...

He died accidentally, but it looks like his life before was screwed up by his childhood stardom as is so often the case with child stars.

William Snape was in my daughter's class at Silverdale and went off the rails after his early stardom as the kid in The Full Monty.

I think this deserves its own thread rather than being tacked onto a thread about Gary Coleman.

Wasn't he a mod on SZ (Gary Coleman)?

Well he's certainly dead, but he has been for some time.

Anyone else think he might have died of a weak chin?

Nipper, I think.

Jimmy Dean too.



And  Louise Bourgeois.



My Grandad died too sadly, about 15 years ago come mid July. Rotten, but not forgotten.

Spare a thought for his dog in that film as well. What was it called again?  :|


The latest digitally cleaned up release of the Dam Busters movie has restored the dog's name to the historically accurate 'Nigger'. It's the best option because people shouldn't pretend that today's values applied in past times and we're also past the time when anyone would be offended by the name in the original movie.

There was a review in the paper a couple of days ago. Yeah I know it's the Torygraph (because that's the free paper I see at work), but it's an intelligent review:
