This is truly sad! Just goes to show you that fame, acclaim, power and fortune doesn't buy you happiness. The film industry lost a great one:-(

I thought he jumped off a "bridge", if it had been a "bride", he may be alive today.

The Jets are moving the team to LA cause this guy killed himself? That doesn't make any sense!

Very sad. At least he left notes, and didn't kill his family, unlike the San Diego guy who tried to kill himself altering killing his wife, 7 month old son, and three year old daughter. Just like Junior Seau, he just killed himself. Still the family will have a hard time coping. Very selfish.

Sorry    

Clearly, getting married was the wrong decision for Tony-since jumping off his bride caused this tragic ending.

Look at that gut, this is a man who obviously lived a life of luxury, wining and dining day in and day out while his own brother prepared to die.

My thoughts and prayers are with this family and the Hollywood community he contributed so much to during his career.

That sucks. It's too bad that our pets can have a peaceful death when they are terminally ill, but people have to resort to this to keep from suffering through a long, agonizing death.

Nothing helps you more in your time of grief than to have a bunch of idiots snapping your photo ...
