Actor Lee Thompson Young, 29, whose career included roles in Disney's "The Famous Jett Jackson" and the movie "Friday Night Lights," is dead of an apparent suicide.
The actor's manager, Jonathan Baruch, told USA Today that Young took his own life. Young had a regular role on the TNT show "Rizzoli & Isles." When he didn't show up to work this morning, staffers called the landlord of Young's LA home to check up on the actor, TMZ.com reported. His body was then discovered with a gunshot wound.
A statement from TNT, Warner Bros. and executive producer Janet Tamaro said, "Everyone at 'Rizzoli & Isles' is devastated by the news of the passing of Lee Thompson Young. We are beyond heartbroken at the loss of this sweet, gentle, good-hearted, intelligent man. He was truly a member of our family. Lee will be cherished and remembered by all who knew and loved him, both on- and off-screen, for his positive energy, infectious smile and soulful grace. We send our deepest condolences and thoughts to his family, to his friends and, most especially, to his beloved mother."
Prince William has given his first interview since becoming a dad and admitted to CNN that he was looking forward to returning to work as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue pilot to get some sleep.
William who welcomed son George with wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, on July 22 told CNN, "He's a little bit of a rascal, I'll put it that way. He either reminds me of my brother [Prince Harry] or me when I was younger. ... He wriggles around quite a lot and he doesn't want to go to sleep that much."
William, 31, said he practiced popping the prince's car seat in the back before driving away from the hospital.
"Believe me, it wasn't my first time," he said. "And I know there's been some speculation about that. I had to practice, I really did. I was terrified it was going to fall off or the door wasn't going to close properly."

Alex Band, lead singer of The Calling, told police he was abducted, beaten and robbed Sunday, just hours before his group announced a comeback effort.
Band told investigators he was walking down a street in Lapeer, Mich., about 3 a.m. Sunday when two men forced him into a blue minivan, CNN reported. The singer said he was "assaulted, robbed, and dropped off on another street," according to Lapeer Police Sgt. Craig Gormley. Another band member took Band to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released, Gormley said.
Word of Band's alleged abduction hit online celebrity websites Monday morning -- at the same time entertainment reporters received an e-mail from a publicity firm announcing The Calling is coming back "stronger than ever" after "fighting through trials and addictions."
A promoter for four Chris Brown concerts in Canada has told The Associated Press that the shows have been canceled. Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, said that the decision was made after consulting with Brown and in light of his recent personal and health-related issues.
The R&B star had his probation reinstated Friday after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident although the hit-and-run charge had been dismissed, the AP said. Brown also suffered a seizure earlier this month.
Brown has been dealing with legal problems since 2009, when he was arrested for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna and was first placed on probation.
