 I'm Just Wild About Gary
Rather, it was the alternative newspaper the East Bay Express that drafted the 4' 8" actor from the famed sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes." Writes Chris Thompson of East Bay Express: "When Arnold Schwarzenegger is a serious contender to run the biggest state in the Union, you know we've all passed through the looking glass.
Critics may charge that Coleman is too unstable for the job--in 1998 he struck an autograph-seeking fan (he says he felt threatened by Tracy Fields, a 205-lb bus driver) and was sentenced to anger-management classes.
Coleman, now 35, has been acting since the early 1970s, doing commercials and guest appearances on "Good Times" and "The Jeffersons" before hitting it big as Arnold Jackson on "Diff'rent Strokes" in 1978.
