RIP - Dennis Hopper, Gary Coleman

What can I say about Dennis Hopper?

From Easy Rider to Apocalypse Now to Blue Velvet, he was responsible for some of the most iconic roles in some of the greatest movies in history. It is a sad day to see another of the film greats pass on.

And, of course, Gary Coleman.

Um... I really have nothing to say about Coleman.

He was a child star who, tragically, never really got his life together after being hugely successful in Diff'rent Strokes. Never having seen the show, the only time I heard about him was news stories about his financial difficulties. Still, he did touch many people and during later life developed a cult following.

Not much of a eulogy, but there you go.
