First, Gary Coleman. Now, Dennis Hopper.

A day after the former sitcom star passed away, this veteran actor lost his battle with cancer. He was 74.

Hopper died early Saturday morning at his house Venice, California, surrounded by family and friends. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in October 2009.

The two-time Oscar nominee starred in such classic films as Easy Rider, Hoosiers, Speed and Apocalypse Now. Sadly, his personal life overshadowed his professional life during his last few months alive.

Earlier this spring, Hopper's fifth wife, Victoria, was accused of trying to have the actor killed.

Our thoughts go out to his loved ones.
