A tale of two celebrity spokesmen.
Some people think stars die in threes. If so, it’s often tough to figure out when to start and stop counting. Not this time.
The demise on consecutive days of Gary Coleman, 42, and Dennis Hopper, 74, has left many people expecting a third celebrity death is imminent. The two actors became stars at early ages, then ad pitchmen later in life.
Coincidentally, in their roles as celebrity endorsers both offered financial advice. But whether either star was effective as a corporate spokesperson is debatable.
