Gary Coleman, born
Feb. 8, 1968 in Illinois, is probably best known for his
role as Arnold Jackson on the TV series "Different
Strokes." Coleman has had a rather difficult past,
with failing kidneys, parents out to rip him off, and
suicidal tendencies. He's even into politics these
days! Coleman basically dropped out of the 80's
around 1985, but before that, he starred in a large
number of TV shows and a couple of movies: On the
Right Track (1981) and Jimmy the Kid (1983).
Coleman still acts in the occasional movie.
