'Diff'rent Strokes' dad Conrad Bain dies at age 89
 
http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...dies-at-age-8/



Conrad Bain, the actor who played the father figure on the sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," has died, a source close to the Bain family confirmed to FOX411.

Bain died Monday night in Livermore, Calif., at the age of 89. His cause of death was unclear, but his daughter Jennifer told TMZ: "He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father."

Bain's death leaves only one surviving member from his "Diff'rent Strokes" TV family. Dana Plato, who played his daughter Kimberly, died in 1999 of a drug overdose. Gary Coleman, who played adopted son Arnold Jackson, died in 2010 after a fall down a flight of stairs in his home. Only Todd Bridges, who played his adopted son Willis Jackson, remains.

When reached for comment, Bridges' manager had not yet heard of Bain's reported passing.

Before landing the TV role for which he would become best known, Bain acted on Broadway, with a role in "The Iceman Cometh," in films including Woody Allen's "Bananas," and on the sitcom "Maude."

I alwways thought his leather chair up in his office /landing area looked awesome.

...no idea why. I was like super young, but remember asking my parents if we could get one.

i might have been dropped on my head once or twice.

we doing another death pool?

Dayze 01-17-2013 09:13 AM

how many maids were characters on that show. I think Mr. D chopped them up and kept him in the back stairwell into the kitchen.

I can remember at least 3.

and another thing; how did Willis get any a** when he was a teenager if he was bunking with Arnold.

and WTF did Mr. D, who could afford the maids, only get a 3 bedroom Penthouse. Cheap bastard.
