{fluuuuush} (sound of career going down the tubes) What an idiot. How lucky can you be to get a part on a highly rated show. How stupid can you be to throw it all away on drugs. This man probably made more per episode than most people make in a year... but that wasn't enough. Stars are a dime a dozen. I say, when one screws up, shove em aside and make room for the next.

Gary needs to check himself into rehab real quick. Maybe next he will not be so lucky and end up overdosing? Back in the day, I use to think he was one of the cutest African-American guys in Hollywood. Damn, he has hit rock bottom and ugly as hell! Drugs & alcohol will make you age and look so ugly!

Attention ALL TMZ Morons, Hollywood actors do drugs, why is it a suprise and everyone is so happy when someone who works his ass off for twenty years gets busted. It's not easy to deal with fame and fortune and millions of dollars, it might sound easy, and I make nowhere near that kind of money, but it is psychologically draining and a big mindgame to deal with fame and all the attention, life gets distorted values get warped and nobody knows who their friends are and who their enemies are. The temptation of drinking drugs and sex gets the best of them. WC Fields, Fatty Arbuckle, Marylin, Belushi, Farley, Phoenix, why is everyone so happy when stars careers spiral downward. Gary is a great actor and has fallen into the typical hollywood downfall, don;t rejoice in his misery, I would like to see some of you walk in his shoes for five years and see if you don't do drugs.

I dont understand why you would sleep in your car when...A. You are ACTOR on TV and can afford Hotel Accomidations, B. You are an ACTOR on TV and can afford to hire a driver and C. HELLO you have several illegals narcotics in your car, D. You need to get your dumbass to a private residence if you are holding and rolling.
