R.I.P. Sherman Hemsley

TV great Sherman Hemsley died today at the age of 74, likely due to natural causes.

The AV Club
Sherman was most known for portraying George Jefferson, starting the character on All in the Family, a counterpart to Carroll O'Connors racist Archie Bunker. He then "moved on up" (had to do it, sorry) to his own show, The Jeffersons. After the end of that show, he continued to make appearances on many other sitcoms, including The Fresh Prince and Family Matters.

Goodbye, Mr. Hemsley!
