Chris Farley

Age: 33
actor

The former Saturday Night Live star used his substantial girth to capitalize on his talent for broad physical comedy. Like many other SNL performers, Farley left the show to pursue a movie career. His films include Tommy Boy, Black Sheep and Beverly Hills Ninja. Comparisons with former SNL star John Belushi are inevitable. Both comedians lived fast and hard and died at the age of 33. An autopsy revealed Farley's death was accidental, caused by opiate and cocaine intoxication.
