According to TMZ, Tiny Lister, Jr. famous for playing intimidating, but lovable tough guys in films like Friday has passed away at the age of 62.
Law enforcement sources say they got a call to the actor’s Marina Del Rey apartment Thursday, just before 3 PM, for an unconscious male. Sources say Tiny Lister was not transported to the hospital, as he was pronounced dead on the scene.
The coroner is at the home, but there’s no word yet on a cause of death.
Coincidentally it was around a month ago when we reported that Ice Cube’s inspiration for the character, Big Sam, was killed in LA by LAPD. Ice Cube would take to Twitter to pay his condolences to the South Central figure. Rest in peace to both guys and our prayers go out to their families.
