Mathew McGrory passed away?

I honestly was trying to find the right way to phrase this question for the title of the post, so hopefully people can tell its a question.
I've just read on a few sites the Mathew McGrory(Devil's Rejects, Big Fish, Dead Hate the living) had just passed away at the age of 32. Horrorchannel.com is one of them i believe. I just wondered if anyone else heard about it. If it is true it is very sad. Mr. McGrory was probably the nicest Celebrity i ever met. IF its not true them i'm an idiot and you can forget i posted this.

A guy called in the Howard Stern show this morning and said he died yesterday in his sleep. He's friends with the family, so that's how he got the news.

I always liked Bigfoot. It was great seeing him with Robin on Millionaire a while ago.

That really sucks.

His range was limited, but he was awesome in everything he was in!

Yeah, I heard that this morning on Stern. Very sad, he was a cool guy, and I enjoyed seeing him in movies.

We filmed an interview with him a few weeks ago. He looked near death. His head was tilted to a 45-degree angle and his skin was white as a sheet. It was pretty sad; it looked like he was perpetually in pain.

He moved me to tears in Big Fish, quite literally. When he gives his first speech, man, it was a great moment. I'm glad to see he graduated and will be remembered for more than some mockery on the Stern show, and he had a great role in a movie that should live on for some time.

Death doesn't suck! Everyone is going to die someday, and If you are a born again christian, then death is a beautiful thing because you will leave this corrupted, sinful world behind, to be with the Lord, and have a gift of eternal life in heaven.

Can you help me get out of debt the Christian way, too?

No no no. I was only thinking of myself. Sucks that I have to sit around here twittling my thumbs.

BTW, lets not start a spiritual discussion. My mind is fine tuned, but my fingers are slippery.

I used to screen calls part-time for Melrose Larry Green's short lived radio show and I met Mathew. My most vivid memory of him was walking into our men's room and seeing him tower over the stall door.

He'll be missed.
