Whatchutalkinbout… Coleman, Hopper, annnnd McClanahan?

Most will remember him as Arnold Jackson on “Diff’rent Strokes” in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but others may recall Gary Coleman’s life after the show which included years of financial, legal, and health troubles. Coleman died last week at the age of 42 from a brain hemorrhage. Easy Rider Dennis Hopper also passed last week at the age of 74 from prostate cancer. He earned an Oscar nomination in 1986 for his role in “Hoosiers,” in which he played an alcoholic basketball team manager. That same year, he received critical acclaim for his performance in David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet.” Rue McClanahan, Golden Girl herself, died yesterday at 76 from a brain hemorrhage. Golden Girls seized the #1 rating its first night, in 1985, stayed in the top 10 for 6 seasons and captured ton of Emmys. It’s a sad month in Hollywood that’s for sure. RIP…

Gary Coleman

Dennis Hopper

Rue McClanahan
