Actor Lou Myers, who was best known as Vernon Gaines on NBC sitcom "A Different World" has passed away.

According to a report by TMZ, Myers was hospitalized in December for pneumonia. A few weeks after his release, he collapsed at home and returned to the hospital. On Feb. 19, Mr. Myers' heart stopped.

Though doctors at Charleston Medical Center in West Virginia initially revived Myers, he slipped into a coma and died hours later.

Myers' most recent role was in a move called "Dreams," released on Feb. 1. He can be seen in the film's trailer below. His previous credits included "All About the Andersons," "NYPD Blue," and "How Stella Got Her Groove Back." Myers also received the NAACP Image Award for his role in the play, "King Hedley II."

Though the birth date on Myers' IMBb page reflects the actor's age at death as 67, sources tell TMZ his true birth date was 10 years earlier, September 26, 1935. Official cause of death will be determined by autopsy.
