And he was quite good, too. Was he doing a character voice, or has his real voice changed dramatically?

There's nothing on Wikipedia. Can't believe you losers are trying to get a Meshach Taylor death hoax going...set the bar higher next time.

Im sorry, I'm the one who started the death thing. I misread what I read on another website. Basically his family posted something on Facebook saying he is currently passing at any minute. Sorry to upset everyone but Im glad his family is able to spend more time with him.

Friends of mine have posted links on FB that he's terminally ill. (The link is RumorFix so I won't post here.)
Which would match R22's post, which says he's "begun his grand transition."

Is Meshach gay or what? I know he's married with kids, but he was a little TOO good as "Hollywood" in those 'Mannequin' movies.

Don't knock it. When my mother was consumed (she weighed 68lbs down from her normal 98lbs) with cancer, they couldn't put that last shot in her IV quick enough. Leave Hollywood Montrose a dignified death, and STFU.
|by Anonymous||reply 51||06/29/2014|
Not really, R49. Probably means he'd gone unconscious and it was just a waiting game at that point. It's fairly common for cancer victims to spend their last few days in a coma "transitioning".

R33 Haven't seen Mannequin in years but found this compilation of Meshach's clips from it. You are right, he was very convincing. And fabulous! Watching this I remember I had a huge crush on Andrew McCarthy. I must only have been about 9 or 10 when I first saw this. Seeing Andrew, I knew what I was....

Wonderful actor. And his story of Celebrity Ghost Stories was one of the few to creep me out.

Meshach was gay; now he dies of an unspecified cancer? Also since 1991 a total of ZERO men and women in Hollywood have contracted HIV. Do you believe this is even close to being credible?

Wow. I thought he was actually younger. I'm watching his Criminal Minds episode now and looked him up as I'm only familiar with Designing Women. He was fantastic in that episode. I had no idea he'd passed away. I thought he was 10 yrs. younger. RIP.
