Actor Ed Asner, Emmy-Winning Star Of Lou Grant And Up, Dies Aged 91

Ed Asner, best known for playing fictional TV newsman Lou Grant, has died aged 91.

The actor, who also endeared himself to a new generation of fans by voicing elderly widower Carl Fredericksen in the Pixar hit Up, passed away “peacefully” on Sunday, his family said.

“Words cannot express the sadness we feel. With a kiss on your head – goodnight dad. We love you.”

The character Lou Grant was first introduced as Mary Richards’s boss on the iconic The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the 1970s. Grant, the irascible editor of the fictional Los Angeles Tribune, then became a character in a show of his own from 1977 to 1982.

The role helped earn Asner seven Emmy awards – the most for a male performer.
