    Ed Asner Donkdown

    Lost in all the Afghinstan shit and also Hurricane Ida is that the last major remaining actor from the Mary Tyler Moore show died Sunday in Asner who was 91.. He won 7 emmys over his career with tons of other accolades..

    From Wiki

    " He was perhaps best known for his role as Lou Grant during the 1970s and early 1980s, on both The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spin-off series Lou Grant, making him one of the few television actors to portray the same character in both a comedy and a drama. He was the most honored male performer in the history of the Primetime Emmy Awards, having won seven five for portraying Lou Grant (three as Supporting Actor in a Comedy Television Series and two as Lead Actor in a Dramatic Television Series). His other Emmys were for performances in two of the most significant television miniseries of the 1970s: Rich Man, Poor Man (1976), where he won for Outstanding Lead Actor for a Single Performance in a TV series, and Roots (1977), for which he won for Outstanding Single Performance by a Supporting Actor in a TV series.[2]

    He played John Wayne's adversary Bart Jason in the 1966 Western El Dorado. He played Santa Claus in several films, notably in 2003's Elf.[3] In 2009, he starred as the voice of Carl Fredricksen in Pixar's animated film Up and made a guest appearance on CSI: NY in the episode "Yahrzeit". In early 2011, Asner returned to television as butcher Hank Greziak in Working Class, the first original sitcom on cable channel CMT. He starred in Michael, Tuesdays and Thursdays, on CBC Television and appeared in The Glades. Asner guest-starred as Guy Redmayne in the sixth season of The Good Wife. In 2020 he guest starred in an episode of Modern Family and had a recurring role as James Staghorne Sr. on Briarpatch."

    Side note he was also basically a Commie bastard as he was a founding member of the modern day Democratic Socialist Party plus he unabashedly supported open borders and the massive flow of illegals across our southern border.. Good Actor yes.. Human being as a whole Fuck Ed Asner.
