Lee Thompson Young "Cyborg" Found Dead
 
Quote:

Lee Thompson Young, a former Disney Channel star who appeared on "Rizzoli & Isles," was found dead this morning at the age of 29.

Police confirmed that the versatile young actor died in an apparent suicide of a gunshot wound. TMZ reports that Young’s landlord found him when he did not report to the set of the TNT drama this morning.
When officers arrived to his apartment at the 5000 block of Tujunga Avenue, they pronounced him dead at the scene. There is no word on whether Young left a note, and the coroner is taking over the case.

"It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning," said Young's long-time manager Jonathan Baruch in a statement.
"Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed. We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family and friends as this very difficult time."
Young began his acting career early, appearing in community theater as a child before heading toward the bright lights of New York City. There, he auditioned for and won the main role in Disney's "The Famous Jett Jackson." The show lasted for three seasons and a TV movie.

After the end of the series, Young appeared in Jamie Foxx's "Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story" and in the "Friday Night Lights" movie as Chris Comer. He also landed guest roles in TV shows including "The Guardian," "South Beach," and "Smallville."
In 2009, Young starred in the short-lived sci-fi drama "FlashForward" as an FBI agent who commits suicide to prevent a death.
His latest work was in TNT's "Rizzoli & Isles" as Det. Barry Frost, Rizzoli's (Angie Harmon) partner.
Young graduated with honors from the University of Southern California.
This is a sad day for his famly and Smallville fans. :(

It is indeed a sad day for Smallville fans. He was the first actor to portray Cyborg Victor Stone. Lee Thompson Young will be missed by his family, fans, and the show business community worldwide.

This but I remember him as the Famous Jett Jackson when I was younger. I can't believe he killed himself. I thought he was had potential to be a big movie actor at his relatively young age. He was a great actor(my favorite Cyborg) and it was a shame. I know suicide is a serious problem but I never thought Lee Thompson Young would have been one to consider it... I send my prayers and condolences to his loved ones.:csad:

This was a great speech. I truly hoped Lee Thomson Young could reappear as Cyborg in season 10 on an animated Cyborg in Justice League War and Flashpoint Paradox. I saw some FlashForward and his guest appearance on Scrubs but never saw his work on Rizzoli & Isles. It honestly will feel a little weird to watch any of his old episodes. I kind of hope BQM will do an Cyborg guest appearance in the season 11 guest appearance.

I'm so heartbroken that he's gone. I don't want to believe suicide was the case. All this time I couldn't stop thinking about his character on Flashforward when he committed suicide in an attempt to try and change the future. I'm not a person who thinks down on people who do kill themselves, all I feel is sympathy and a wish that he could've been helped sooner
