Gary Coleman might be gone, but his legacy will live on in — through an as yet unreleased video game.
RadarOnline.com has learned the Diff’rent Strokes star reprised his character Arnold Jackson, one last time, in a secret project for Sony.
It was recorded late last year — and Coleman lent his voice to an animated caricature of himself, that will ultimately become a cameo in another Playstation game.
But don’t expect to hear his famous catchphrase of the ‘80s: ‘What’choo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?’
“Gary played himself in the Sony role,” the late star’s manager John Alcantar exclusively confirmed to RadarOnline.com.
“He was self-deprecating, because to him, entertaining was having people laugh at him. He seemed bitter about it times, but in truth, he wasn’t.
“For the most part he was open to doing anything and in this project, he recites some of his famous catchphrases.
“But ‘What’choo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?’, well, that’s the one line he didn’t like to do. He just didn’t like being asked to repeat it.”
Coleman died last Friday at age 42 after suffering a fall at his Santaquin, Utah, home.
He was survived by wife Shannon Price, 24, who he married in 2007.
While Sony is yet to announce it plans for the project after his death, Alcantar said Coleman, “absolutely still would have wanted it to be released.”
“It would be a fitting tribute to him,” the manager said.
“Gary was a big fan of cartoons and video games, it was his passion; he loved G.I. Joe and Star Wars and they would put a smile on his face.
“When he was presented with the chance to do this project, he jumped at it.
“Gary wanted to work… he was always looking to work because he just wanted to entertain and he did in this project.”
