    I completely forgot about him being a part of Postal 2. Random. Anyway, here's a link from the Huffington Post. I imagine a couple of video game blogs will post quick articles about the roles Coleman had in video games. He was only 42...:-(

    Yeah, he had been having some health problems over the last two years. Being 45 years old, I used to watch Diff'rent Strokes when it was aired first run. See ya Gary, R.I.P..

    Unless you were alive in the 70s, he's basically famous for being a psychotic security guard and beating a woman up.

    Sad to hear about the news. He apparently fell and smacked his head on something and the blow eventually killed him. I loved his Arnold Jackson character from Diff'rent Strokes. However, his life was a cautionary tale of how some people in Hollywood do whatever they can to remain relevant. Once DS went off the air, he did everything he could to earn a paycheck, from appearing in Portal 2 to being in a John Cena video to running for Governor of California to being on Divorce Court. He had a very troubled life but I expected him to live longer than 42 years.

    Somebody moderate the hell out of this. I thought there was a rule that bad jokes died when their progenitors die. Anyway, I think I know who murdered him: Douglas Adams :P.

    I'm pretty sure you meant Postal 2, although the thought of "What'choo talking about, GLaDOS?" sounds awesome.

    This is sad, he brought me a lot of joy. Postal 2 and watching reruns of Different Strokes. My dog just died and I was thinking of naming my next one Willis. I'm sorry your douchebag adoptive parents had to spend all your money Gary:(
