Did Gary Coleman Trade Nudity for Bail?

1/26/2010 7:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

 Gary ColemanGary Coleman's penis was the key to his freedom after being jailed Sunday -- this according to the movie producers who claim to have paid Coleman's bail ... movie producers who have a serious hole in their story.

The producers sent out a press release bragging that they forked over the cash after Coleman agreed to allow them to use nude footage of him in their movie.

But several reputable media outlets in Utah are reporting the person who fronted Coleman's bail isn't a movie producer at all -- he's a fan who owns a loan business.

We called the producers, who double-talked us and wouldn't answer the question: did Coleman agree to trade nude footage for bail money?

Pardon us for saying ... but it kinda feels like a publicity ploy. Just sayin' ...

Damn... another person the haters love to pick on. I gotta believe that this guy has had more than his share of tough breaks. I mean really, it's obvious that he's just trying to get by in this world, so hey... give him a break. Yeah... he's probably got some major anger issues... but then again, how many times can a man be treated like a child and taunted with " what choo talkin about " before it puts him on a permanent edge. Sure wish this dudes life would straighten out for him...

This is the result of child stars who don't have any direction or guidance in their lives, and don't have anything or know anything else to fall back on when their stardom is over. People need to know what they are getting their children into; but of course, they just see green when they take their kids to auditions. Get your education people. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

I wonder if any of you immature commenters would like to trade lives with Gary Coleman? Yes, he's angry but he is also very ill enduring multiple liver transplants and daily dialysis? If you look at the yellowing of his eyes and and the dryness of his skin, even the untrained eye can tell that he's not well. TMZ posts this stuff and you sheep (well most of you) tend to fall for it and start cracking jokes. Maybe he doesn't work because he doesn't feel good and with the money he made as a child he should have never had to work again. Average Americans are struggling through in this economic climate and with the medical bills he's incurring he's got to be feeling the pinch. Get off his *ick literally, and give him a break...and shame on TMZ for expoiting this man's hardships!

And these producers think they just sweetened the pot on their movie by revealing something like this?

Gary, you have had it so rough for so long. Something is going to change for you soon, it has too. Don't give up and certainly don't listen to the idiot comments from wannabees.

I feel sorry for Gary. His life obviously sucks and he can't overcome his demons....I'm not saying someone else in his shoes couldn't make a go of it - I just think he is too depressed and angry....what a miserable existence to be a joke and the target of ridicule, and to not have anybody to love you.

If someone did actually bail him out for nude pictures, they are going to hell. That is sick and preying on the desperate and weak. I hope it was a fan that helped him.

give the man a break . we all loved him from different strokes . hes had some tough breaks . he seems to carry quite a chip on his shoulder . but I guess we all would if we were told as a kid what a star we were and it was all lost and taken a way . im still a fan and hope things get better . people made money off him when he was on top . sound familier .. comeon gary . hoping things will get better.
