As many of you probably already know, we lost two celebs over the weekend. Both Gary Coleman and Dennis Hopper passed away this weekend, to my surprise. Certainly it was widely known that Dennis Hopper was fighting cancer over the last several months, but the timing so close to Gary Coleman’s sudden death over the weekend was a bit surprising.
Dennis Hopper of course had a great career as an actor, having acted in my many films over the years. He was an amazing actor and he will be missed.
I would also like to honour Gary Coleman on his career. Sure his career as an actor wasn’t as extensive as Dennis Hopper’s, but I don’t think he should be discounted because of it. In many ways, it’s disappointing that Gary Coleman wasn’t able to land it big following Different Strokes.
These guys were definitely a one of a kind and I don’t think they will be ever replaced, or forgotten.
