'Different World' actor Lou Myers dies

Lou Myers, a stage, film and TV actor who memorably portrayed Mr. Gaines on the comedy "A Different World," has died, CNN confirms.

Myers had been battling pneumonia for months at the time of his death, according to a statement from Global Business Incubation, a nonprofit of which he was chairman. He passed away in Charleston, West Virginia, on February 19 at the age of 75.

Although Myers is known for playing the lovably grumpy restaurant owner on Bill Cosby's "A Different World" - a spinoff of "The Cosby Show" that followed a group of college students - the actor held a variety of credits to his name.

He appeared in TV shows such as "NYPD Blue," "JAG" and "ER" in addition to movies like 2001's "The Wedding Planner" and 1998's "How Stella Got Her Groove Back."

A West Virginia native and an alum of West Virginia State University, Myers also brought his talent to the stage. His first appearance on Broadway was with the Negro Ensemble Company’s production of "The First Breeze of Summer," and he went on to perform in "The Piano Lesson," "Oprah Winfrey's Color Purple" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."

One of Myers' earliest credited appearances on television was on "The Cosby Show," and according to the statement, "Lou always remembered that he owes his introduction to Hollywood to Bill Cosby."

The actor is survived by his mother, who is 95, and his son.

I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I really thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you can repair should you werent too busy in search of attention.

    There are definitely a variety of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a great point to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, but I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

    February 21, 2013 at 4:48 pm | Report abuse |
    • KJ

      Perhaps it was viral or a fungal pneumonia neither respond to antibiotics. Not all pneumonia is bacterial and perhaps he had a strain that was resistant to most antibiotics (growing problem) or he may have had other medical problems that was causing his overall health to be worsened with the pneumonia. Or he simply could have died of something else but this was the "official" reason given.

      Antiobiotic resistant strains are becoming pretty common (like MRSA and DRSP). Aside from that, the viral form of pneumonia (for which antibiotics will do nothing) account for about a third of adult cases.

    That Cosby Show episode was so funny that I still remember it to this day. The guy just had natural presence.
    Gaines: "Go down there and tell 'em about me!"
    Cosby: "They still let Mrs. x go."
    Gaines: "Say What?!"
    Cosby: "They still let her go."
    Gaines: "Oh...well, then don't say nothing about me then...cuz you the wrong man!" (exits grumbling inaudibly)

    i find it amazing how one stays this way and how hatred can be so bad toward someone with all of its own problems there is still time for such hatred.

    Yeah, let's take a sad note about a beloved actor and turn it into a political commentary.

    • And you're surprised???

      As if this thread should be any different than the billions of other threads that get hijacked by numbnuts who need to sound off about their politics and/or their religion.

      It's just wrong. A person should never out live their children. My great grandmother out lived all her children. It was a heartbreak she had to live with for years.

    L.B. – Do you really think that comment is funny??? If you do, you are nothing but a piece of garbage masquerading as a human. I hope you die a horribly painful death very soon so I do not have to read your incredibly ignorant posts. You are a POS !

    You sir, are an idiot. This article is about a accomplished actor that has a body of work that many appreciate. Just because his career meant nothing to you does not mean he should not be written about. I personally know very little about the symphony or artistic community in Russia, but when I read about the horrific attack on the new ballet director I showed respect for their community.

    Whether you've heard of his name or not, I'm sure you reconize his body of work which is fairly impressive. You give me the sense that you're an ignorant, contained white person, probably in a small community you've rarely ventured away from. Please crawl back into your dumb hole.
