Windell D. Middlebrooks, best known for his work in the Miller High Life Commercials and on ‘Parks & Recreation’ was found dead on Mar. 9. After being found unresponsive at his Los Angeles home, Windell was transferred to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was only 36 years old.
His signature big smile and Robin-Hood-Take-from-the-rich-and-give-to-the-poor personality made him almost an overnight success in Miller’s advertising campaign.
While he stole the show in those Miller High Life ads in 2008, Middlebrooks worked steadily in TV for the past 10 years, becoming a regular on Body of Proof , It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Suite Life on Deck, Cougar Town, Scrubs,Parks and Recreation, Entourage, Hannah Montana and more.
He most recently appeared on the Disney Channel sci-fi comedy Mighty Med and he’s being remembered fondly by his fellow Disney stars.
“Rest in peace to one of my favorite characters on Mighty Med, Windell Middlebrooks,”tweeted Mighty Med star Bradley Steven Perry. “You’ll be missed, my friend.”
