Gary Coleman, 42 died today after a brain hemorage.
Best remembered for “Diff’rent Strokes” character Arnold Jackson and his “Whatchu talkin’ ’bout?” catchphrase, Coleman chafed at his permanent association with the show but also tried to capitalize on it through reality shows and other TV appearances.
As a grown UP, his life was marked with legal, financial and health troubles, suicide attempts and even a 2003 run for California governor.
He wanted to escape the Arnold Jackson image, but was never able to do so.
He made us laugh, we should be thankful for that.
