    I always think Blue Velvet when I think of Hopper too. I think he invented 'creeper' with that role about 20 yrs before it existed...

    Its been a tough week for actors, I never heard of Dio though, he must have been some unknown B movie actor or something. Coleman and Hopper on the other hand were both fabulous actors.

    Yes, I'd read he was in some things, wondered if he was "fabulous" or adequate. I'd never heard him spoken of as a notable talent.

    Yes Gary Coleman was in some fabulous movies such as The Professional and recently the Dark Knight. He's a phenomenal actor and he will be missed.

    RIP

    I didn't realize how frail looking he got.

    Gary Coleman obviously meant a great deal to you, as he wasn't even in The Professional! Gary Oldman co-starred in that film.
