Jerry Stiller, RIP
Comedian and actor Jerry Stiller has died at age 92. His son, Ben Stiller, shared the sad news on Twitter: "I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes. He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad."
Jerry was best known in the last 30 years for playing Frank Costanza, George's apoplectic father, on Seinfeld, and but his comedy career was deep. He and wife Anne Meara (who died in 2015) were a very popular comedy duo in the '60s and they were both on hit '90s/'00s sitcom The King of Queens. Jerry also played Divine's husband in John Waters' original Hairspray, was in classic 1974 NYC thriller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, and much more.
Rest in peace, Jerry.
