Windell D. Middlebrooks, the actor best known as the Miller High Life delivery guy, passed away on Monday at age 36. His agent Steve Ivey confirmed the sad news to the Associated Press on Tuesday. While the cause of Middlebrooks's death remains unknown, it appears that no foul play was involved according to TMZ. Middlebrooks's family released a statement, mourning the "passing of a young Black star."
While Middlebrooks was most widely recognized for his role as the beer delivery man, he was also an accomplished television star who had recurring roles on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Scrubs, The Suite Life (he famously played Kirby) and Body of Proof. His final role was in the motion picture comedy Road Hard, which came out just last week.
Middlebrooks's biography on his website described him as a person who had "a personality as big as his home state [of Texas]."
"This Big man, who moves as though he is floating on air, possesses such a Big presence that you just can't tear your eyes away from him," it reads.
Our condolences go out to Middlebrooks's family. Check out the video below of Middlebrooks on The Mo'Nique Show.
