For some reason the other day when we were watching Platoon I told my husband that Kevin Dillon recently committed suicide, he didn't beleive me. So I googled it and it seems he's still alive I have him, obviously, confused with some other famous actor's brother. So can any of you set me straight?? Who committed suicide? I think it was this year....

Christopher Penn actually died of an enlarged heart, not suicide, if I'm not mistaken. He was also a close friend of Adrian Pasdar's, who plays Nathan Petrelli on Heroes.

River Phoenix, who at the time was a much bigger celebrity than his younger bro Joaquin, died of a drug overdose at the Viper Room. I don't think it was an intentional suicide.

I remember some small time actor who played in some 90s teen show committed suicide recently in a Las Vegas hotel room, but I can't remember his name or the show's name either. It had something to do with water though, if I remember correctly.

Default Jonathan Brandis?

Jonathan Brandis committed suicide in 2003. He was dating Tatyana Ali at the time and had been in movies such as The NeverEnding Story and LadyBugs. Was also on the tv show 'seaQuest DSV'.

O - you said this year. Doh!
