An audition for a TV project that later fell through ultimately led to a 10-year-old Coleman being cast as Arnold Jackson, the cherubic adopted son of a rich New Yorker, in the sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes." The series became a hit and quickly turned Coleman into a star. But he fell on hard times financially and professionally after the show's eight-year run ended in 1986, with the pint-sized sensation occasionally landing guest shots on fare such as "Simon & Simon," "Martin" and "The Drew Carey Show."
Plagued by health problems all of his life because of a congenital kidney disease, Coleman passed away May 28, 2010, after suffering a brain hemorrhage. His final role was in the 2008 mockumentary Midgets vs. Mascots.
