    RIP

    Met him at an event in Cape Cod. We were in a tent and there was a big storm moving the tent everywhere and he was in a wheelchair and thought he was going to die. We calmed him down and got him out of there and he gave me a fist bump. Cool guy

    R. Lee Ermey as well. I always felt bad for Verne Troyer. I think he has always had a lot of problems, both mentally and physically. I'm sure he was never going to live to a ripe age of something like 80 or 85, but it still sucks non the less.

    He was unique because of his small stature and became memorable as 'Mini Me' in the Austin Powers franchise.

    My condolences to his family.....

    He could have easily been on Celebrity Rehab, but it was The Surreal Life. He was so out of it on one episode he was peeing in the corner. It was funny at the time, but realizing now he dealing with a lot of issues it's not funny anymore.

    I remember watching that. It had to be 10+ years ago by now. He seemed like a mess then, so I can only imagine how his mental health has deteriorated since.

    Yeah I felt terrible for him during that season because it was easy to see that he needed real professional help and was a truly lonely man who had been swallowed whole by a fame that was fleeting.
