Actor De’Angelo Wilson, who starred as DJ Iz in 8 Mile, apparently hung himself on November 26, just one day before Thanksgiving.
According to police, Wilson, who also had a role in the hit movie Antwone Fisher, was found dead in the back room of a Los Angeles business, although it took police a week to locate his next of kin.
Once Wilsons mother was contacted, she revealed that she didnt have the funds to bring her deceased sons body back to his native home of Dayton.
A group of his friends have stepped in – including the real Antwone Fisher, who befriended Wilson during the production of the movie Antwone Fisher.
Wilsons most recent role was in 2006, when he starred as Julius in Mercy Street.
He also had small roles in The Salon, CSI: NY, Outside Man and others.
