Sporting a bandaged forehead and walking with a cane, the former child star sat down with E! News today less than 24 hours after being released from a Los Angeles hospital. The actor says he suffered a seizure in his hotel room as he was giving a round of telephone interviews Wednesday morning—and it wasn't his first such scare.
"I had a seizure yesterday, and I'm a little weak on my left side, but I'm perfectly fine." Coleman says the bump on his head and the cane were actually the result of a tumble at his Utah home on New Year's Day and not due to yesterday's episode. "I fell down the stairs—not because of a party—but because I was rushing to open the door for someone. I got a little damaged. And then 20 minutes later I had another seizure. So it looks like my brain's being rattled inside my head for some reason."
In Los Angeles to protest a straight-to-DVD film he costarred in called Midgets vs. Mascots, Coleman alleges the filmmakers used a body double for nude scenes in the movie. He says he plans to sue and prevent the moviemakers from selling any more copies of the film.
"I wanted all my fans and all your fans to protest my penis being in the movie, because I didn't want that. It's a body double, I believe, because I certainly was not gonna do this. And I heard that the body double is ugly, and is unattractive, and does not make me look good."
And what do the film's producers have to say? Read on...
