Actor-writer Spalding Gray, pictured in 2002, disappeared on Jan. 10 and is believed to have committed suicide. His body was found on March 7 in the East River in New York City. Gray's greatest success was his Obie-winning monologue "Swimming to Cambodia," which recounted in part his movie role in "The Killing Fields." The monologue, developed over two years of performance, became a film directed by Jonathan Demme. Gray appeared in the David Byrne film "True Stories" as well as other movies that included "Beaches," "Kate & Leopold" and "The Paper" -- 38 film appearances in all. He was 62.
