RIP: Tommy “Tiny” Lister (Friday, The Fifth Element) - Knocked the f*^% out!

Per TMZ:
Tommy "Tiny" Lister -- famous for playing intimidating, but lovable tough guys in films like "Friday" -- has died ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call to the actor's Marina Del Rey apartment Thursday, just before 3 PM, for an unconscious male. Our sources say Tommy was not transported to the hospital, as he was pronounced dead on the scene.

We're told the coroner is at the home, but there's no word yet on a cause of death.

Walter Hill used him well in some of his movies, e.g. EXTREME PREJUDICE and TRESPASS.

8:21 AM PT -- 12/11 -- Lister had been experiencing COVID symptoms in the days leading up to his death ... according to his manager, Cindy Cowan.

Cowan tells CNN that Tiny began feeling sick a week ago, but he got worse quickly -- couldn't breathe and felt very weak.

She says he was supposed to work on a movie set last weekend but had to cancel due to his breathing difficulties, and he also canceled a Zoom appearance for a TV festival Wednesday. That night is when Cowan says friends and family tried to call and check on him, but their calls went on answered.

RIP

I looked at Tiny's Instagram feed and from the most recent videos I saw of him, he didn't look well.

He would’ve chewed up and rip covid apart in his prime.

The first Friday movie was great. But Friday 2 was kind of crappy

RIP.
I almost forgot he was in Armed and Dangerous and Jackie Brown, two favorites of mine as well as guilty pleasure I Got the Hook Up. 221 acting credits! He will be missed.

He was such a big fella. The nickname "Tiny" doesn't make any sense.

It's the same way I had the nickname "Poker Face" when we played cards in college.
