Gary Coleman, the child star and actor of the 1970s show "Diff'rent Strokes," died Friday after a reported head injury sustained at his Utah home on Wednesday. The 42-year-old actor was unconcious and on life support on Thursday. As a boy, Coleman was famous for his humor and catch phrases like "Whachoo talkin' bout, Willis?" More recently, Coleman had a more difficult life in the limelight: he was charged with assault in 1998 after an altercation with an adult film actress, and a public divorce between him and his wife Shannon Price was aired on the show "Divorce Court."
