Sherman Hemsley, who played the brash George Jefferson on "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons," died Tuesday at age 74, his booking agent said.
Hemsley played Jefferson, a wisecracking owner of a dry cleaner on "All In the Family" from 1973 until 1975, when the spinoff "The Jeffersons" began an 11-season run.
Hemsley also played Deacon Ernest Frye in the sitcom "Amen."
We're dropping like flies. Except for Ed Asner. He's immortal.
Don't forget Abe Vigoda.
Yes, he's still alive...
Hey, Kirk Douglas is still living, and the way it's going, he may outlive his son, Michael, who has throat cancer.
