Tom Lister Jr, the actor who played the famous character, passed away on December 10th. According to TMZ, health care professionals were summoned to the actor’s apartment in Marina Del Rey, California, on Thursday. Sadly, when they arrived, the 62-year-old was already dead. The actor’s cause of death has not yet been released by his family. However, the news of his passing has sent shockwaves through the entertainment fraternity. Just last month, fans mistook a tribute from Ice Cube as a confirmation that his co-actor had passed away. As you might have imagined, that proved to be a misunderstanding. It turns out that it was the real-life individual that Cube crafted the Deebo character from, who passed away. Ice Cube took some time to speak on the death of his co-star. “RIP Tiny “Deebo” Lister. America’s favorite bully was a born entertainer who would pop into character at the drop of a hat terrifying people on and off camera,” Ice Cube said. “Followed by a big smile and laugh. Thank you for being a good dude at heart. I miss you already.”
