Ed Asner, a burly and prolific character actor who became a star in middle age as the gruff but lovable newsman Lou Grant, first in the hit comedy The Mary Tyler Moore Show and later in the drama Lou Grant, died on Sunday. He was 91.

Asner’s representative confirmed the actor’s death. His official Twitter account included a note from his children: “We are sorry to say that our beloved patriarch passed away this morning peacefully. Words cannot express the sadness we feel. With a kiss on your head- Goodnight dad. We love you.”

Never had the opportunity to watch Up as I’ve always thought it was shameless in the way it tugs at the heartstrings, but many people love it regardless. Rest in peace Ed.


Man that sucks. Loved him in up and Cobra Kai. He played a small but very pivotal role in that one. Wonder what they'll do with his character now.
