French Stewart dead?#1
Posted: 3/17/08 at 10:58pm
i was searching facebook for something and found a group called: "Rest in Peace French Stewart (1964-200French Stewart dead?"

this is what the description said: "French Stewart the briliant comedy actor who portrayed Harry the alien on 3rd rock from the sun and inspector gadget in Inspector Gadget 2 passed away this week at the tender age of 44 after crashing his smart car on Sunset Boulevard. He leaves behind his wife Melinda and his sons French Jr. and Alberto. French was currently working on a made for tv adaptation of the Diary of Anne Frank in which he plays a villainous Nazi Colonel, it was said to be a major departure from his previous work. His memorial service is next Monday with John Lithgow expected to give a rousing speech."

I have searched Google for news but I have found nothing. is it true?

IMDB seems to believe he's still alive. Is there a date on that announcement?

No, this isn't true. He doesn't have children and his wife's name is Katherine. It's just a stupid joke.

Is French Stewart related to French Music? Because there's a thread about him too.

Could it be that French Dressing is dead? I never see it on the salad bar any more.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

The line about his comeback role as a plays a villainous Nazi Colonel in The Diary of Anne Frank wasn't enough to make you realize it was bs?

the last thing I saw him in was "The New Partridge Family" (pilot only, project was scrapped) as Rueben Kincaid.

While the episode was ill-concieved from start to finish, French's work was singularly brilliant as the harried, cynical manager. Mythic.
