    Woolf died of a stroke at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center about 3:20 p.m., said his publicist, Zack Teperman. The actor had been hospitalized in critical condition since Thursday, when he was struck by a car mirror while jaywalking near Hollywood Boulevard, police said.

    Following his death, Woolf's family issued a statement: "We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben. He touched so many hearts in his 34 years. His memory will live on within each of us and within his work."

    Woolf, who was 4 foot 4, was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism when he was young. He also worked as a preschool teacher in addition to working on the hit FX show.

    The investigation into the collision that led to Woolf's death is ongoing. Police said Woolf was jaywalking. The driver stopped and was interviewed by officers, but no citations were issued.

    Woolf was not married and did not have children. His dog, Lisa, will be adopted by his mother.

    A memorial service is expected to take place in Santa Barbara in a few weeks, but no details are yet available.

    This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

    Didn't know who he was, but still, gotta admire him for overcoming his "shortcomings" and leaving more of an impact than many of us do. RIP :sadbye::rip:

    Most guys would have been hit in the shoulder blade and lived.

    Sad news. That's cool he worked as a preschool teacher. Imagine having a teacher who's as tall as the kids.

    I'd see him walking on Hollywood Blvd. quite often. One of the nicest people you could ever meet.

    I'm sure the Emmys will feature him in the In Memoriam segment right after Eric the Actor.
