John Bunny

John Bunny, born September 21, 1863 in New York City, United States – died April 26, 1915 in Brooklyn, New York, was the first comic star of the American silent film era.

John Bunny

John Bunny attended High School in Brooklyn and worked as a grocery clerk before joining a small minstrel show touring the East Coast. He went on to jobs as stage manager for various stock companies and performed in vaudeville before being drawn to the fledgling motion picture business. By 1910, Bunny was working at Vitagraph Studios where the happy-go-lucky, rotund man quickly became an international star of silent film comedies.

John Bunny had only been acting in films for five years when he passed away from Bright's disease and was interred in the Cemetery of the Evergreens in Brooklyn, New York. Because silent film had no language barrier, Bunny's popularity was such that his death was front-page news in Europe as well as the United States.

Following his passing, advances in technology and in stunts brought great new comedic stars to silent film that relegated John Bunny to the status of an almost completely-forgotten actor. However, John Bunny was eventually honored for his contribution to the motion picture industry with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1715 Vine Street in Hollywood.

However, John Bunny was eventually honored for his contribution to the motion picture industry with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1715 Vine Street in Hollywood. In 2004, Coleman played a supporting role in the controversial computer game Postal 2 by Running With Scissors, Inc. Following his passing, advances in technology and in stunts brought great new comedic stars to silent film that relegated John Bunny to the status of an almost completely-forgotten actor. Coleman placed 8th in a field of 135 candidates, receiving 14,242 votes. Because silent film had no language barrier, Bunny's popularity was such that his death was front-page news in Europe as well as the United States. After Arnold Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy, Coleman stated that he would be voting for Schwarzenegger. John Bunny had only been acting in films for five years when he passed away from Bright's disease and was interred in the Cemetery of the Evergreens in Brooklyn, New York. This campaign was coordinated by the free news weekly the East Bay Express.

By 1910, Bunny was working at Vitagraph Studios where the happy-go-lucky, rotund man quickly became an international star of silent film comedies. Coleman was a candidate for governor in the 2003 California recall election. He went on to jobs as stage manager for various stock companies and performed in vaudeville before being drawn to the fledgling motion picture business. He was ordered to pay bus driver Tracy Fields $1,665 for hospital bills resulting from a fight, stemming from an attempt by Fields to get Coleman's autograph whilst he shopping for a bulletproof vest in a California mall.[1] (http://www.eonline.com/News/Items/0,1,3385,00.html) Coleman said he felt "threatened by her insistence" and punched her in the head. John Bunny attended High School in Brooklyn and worked as a grocery clerk before joining a small minstrel show touring the East Coast. Coleman appeared in court on November 2, 2000, charged with assault. John Bunny, born September 21, 1863 in New York City, United States – died April 26, 1915 in Brooklyn, New York, was the first comic star of the American silent film era. As with Knight Rider, Rubik's Cube, Care Bears and other artifacts from the early 1980s, Coleman's popularity coincided with the childhood of a particularly productive demographic of internet users, and he is, as of 2004, a minor cult figure.

He occasionally appears in cameo roles, most of which refer to his earlier acting career. In 2001 he was employed as a shopping mall security guard in the Los Angeles area (a video of him trying to stop a vehicle from entering a compound while the driver ridiculed him was a popular Internet meme). Despite this, Coleman filed for bankruptcy in 1999. He briefly owned a video game arcade in Fisherman's Village in Marina del Rey, near Santa Monica, California.

Coleman famously sued his own parents over misappropriation of his $3.8 million trust fund, and won a $1,280,000 ruling on February 23, 1993. As he grew older, however, he fell from public favour and, after the cancellation of Diff'rent Strokes, his acting career declined sharply; his career path was common to many child stars and other icons of the period, such as Mr T and Henry Winkler. At the height of his fame on Diff'rent Strokes, Coleman earned $70,000 per episode. During the run of the show Coleman was a popular figure, starring in a number of feature films and made-for-TV movies including On the Right Track, and The Kid With the Broken Halo.

Coleman has had two kidney transplants, one in 1973 and one in 1984, and requires constant dialysis. Coleman was born with a congenital kidney defect known as nephritis, which halted his growth at an early age, leading to a notably small stature (4' 8") which became his most distinguishing feature. He was particularly famous for his catch phrase, "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?", delivered to his character's older brother Willis Jackson. Born in Zion, Illinois, Coleman is most famous for the role of Arnold Jackson on the Diff'rent Strokes, an American sitcom which ran on NBC from 1978 to 1986.

Gary Coleman (born February 8, 1968) is an American actor.

When asked by Howard Stern if he has had oral sex, Coleman said: "No! That's not a place for a young woman's face to be.".
