RIP: Gary Coleman

Actor Gary Coleman, most widely recognized for his smart mouthed role on Diff'rent Strokes, died today at age 42.  Entertainment Weekly reports that Coleman suffered an intracranial hemorrhage after he fell at his home in Utah last Wednesday. 

While his later life was plagued with financial issues and incident reports, as an actor Coleman was a prolific television star.  He's survived (in all seriousness) by his wife Shannon, the phrase "Whatchoo talkin' about Willis?", and his namesake likeness in the Tony-Award winning musical Avenue Q.  That's a pop cultural footprint.
