Gary Coleman has died at age 42. According to Radar, Coleman had been hospitalized in Utah since Wednesday, May 26th, after suffering what his family has been calling "a serious medical problem." Coleman suffered an intracranial hemorrhage, and slipped into a coma. He was pulled of life support on Friday morning. Coleman is probably best known for the television show Diff'rent Strokes, but has appeared in a few movies, including On The Right Track, Jimmy The Kid, Fox Hunt, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Church Ball, An American Carol, and most recently Midgets vs. Mascots. »

No, it's not the newest trap from Saw 7; it's actually the brand-new trailer for a family (?) farce called All Expenses Paid Movie Star Vacation Grown Ups, which stars the aforementioned men (in addition to ladies like Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, and Maya Rudolph) as a group of old pals who ... take their families to a cabin. So it's sort of like a fart-laden version of The Big Chill meets The Great Outdoors, I'm assuming. The director is the man who gave you You Don't Mess With the Zohan, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, and The Benchwarmers. The writers are Mr. Sandler and Fred Wolf, the man who penned Strange Wilderness, Without a Paddle, and Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star.
In other words, it's your typical Happy Madison production. »

The road to adulthood for the child star is frequently a rocky one. For Corey Haim, who has died at the age of 38, it proved, in the end, too much to negotiate. Haim's guileless, fun-loving, all-American brand of youth and confidence won him many admirers. But it was a difficult schtick to carry into adulthood.
Born in Toronto in 1971, Haim enrolled in acting lessons to help cure his shyness. He proved a natural, with a great fresh grin and an easy way with a one-liner, which won him a small role, aged 12, on TV show The Edison Twins.

Ktla has confirmed that actor Corey Haim, best known for his roles in teen films in the 1980s like "The Lost Boys" and "Licensed to Drive," has died at the age of 38, apparently from an accidental drug overdose.
Haim was a teen icon in the late 1980s and often starred in films alongside his friend and other teen idol, Corey Feldman. The "two Coreys" attempted a comeback of sorts in 2007 with an A&E series aptly titled, "The Two Coreys."
Haim, who suffered from addictions to drugs and alcohol throughout the 1990s appeared in smaller roles in the 2000s, including cameos in "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star" and "Lost Boys: The Tribe."

The three of you out there clamoring for a sequel to David Spade's 2001 comedy The Adventures of Joe Dirt will be excited to hear that the mulleted janitor is making a comeback -- in animated form. Variety  reports that TBS has signed a deal with Spade to develop a cartoon series based on the movie, in the hopes of getting an original show that they can pair with Family Guy re-runs. The animated show will be produced through Sony Pictures TV and Happy Madison Productions, with Spade, the film's co-writer Fred Wolf, and Donick Carey (The Simpsons, Just Shoot Me!, Bored to Death) penning the script. With all the other animated possibilities out there, is this something we really need? The original movie never even made its money back at the box office. Heck, I'd rather see an animated version of Just Shoot Me! or Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star over this, »
