Oh man - what a bummer.  

One of my favorite movie lines from Michael Caine when  Mini-Me dropped his pants..."it looks like a baby's arm holding an apple".

Wow. Unexpected and sad.

From The Guardian's article on his passing:

The family statement did not give a cause of death but it added: “Depression and suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.”

Very sorry to hear, especially if this was depression related. I was not fully aware of his ties to UM, which makes this all the more saddening.

His alcoholism, depression, and anger were super evident if you watched him on the Surreal life. I think he was on the same season as Vanilla Ice

Psychological issues to encounter on an individual basis.

Dealing with all three is a mountain too high to climb and it's ashame that this was the end result.

WARNING:  Jack Gleeson's self-depecating comment that his speech to the Oxford Union on the commodification of celebrity would be "boring" shouldn't undermine his commentary.  If you hated Joffrey Baratheon on HBO's Game of Thrones, then this speech from the actor who portrayed him, Philosophy and Theology student at Trinity College, Dublin Jack Gleeson, might come as a surprise.
