Martin star Tommy Ford has passed away at the age of 52, this according to his co-star Carl Payne. “On behalf of the family, we would like to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers,” Payne told TMZ.

This news comes hours after it was mistakenly reported, and tweeted by friend Anthony Anderson, that Ford was already dead. Tommy’s wife, Gina Sasso, clarified the situation by revealing that her husband was in critical condition and on life support after suffering a ruptured aneurysm in his abdomen on Sunday.

Tommy was known and loved, thanks to his hilarious character (of the same name) on the 90’s sitcom. He will surely be missed by many, including his co-star Martin Lawrence, who tweeted his condolences.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
