Joshua Shintani Dead - 'Shallow Hal' Actor Dies at 32

Joshua Shintani, best known for his role in the movie Shallow Hal, has died at 32.

The one-time actor died on Wednesday (November 25) in Kauai, Hawaii. His mother took him to the hospital last week where he was diagnosed with an advanced case of pneumonia and he sadly did not recover, according to TMZ.

Joshua‘s famous scene in the 2001 movie features him playing the song “Never Forget Where I’m From” on the ukulele while Jack Black‘s character walks by. Director Peter Farrelly discovered him playing outside of a public library while on vacation in Hawaii. You can watch a clip from the scene below.

We send our thoughts and condolences to Joshua‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
