He passed away of natural causes in 2021 at the age of 91.


Eddie "Ed" Asner (Hebrew name Yitzhak, also credited as Edward Asner; November 15, 1929 August 29, 2021) was an UsefulNotes/EmmyAward-winning American actor whose career lasted more than six decades. He's perhaps best known for his character Lou Grant, who debuted in ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow''. After the show's run, Asner's character would be given his own show, ''Series/LouGrant''. This made him one of the few actors to play the same character on both a comedy series and a drama series (and he won Emmys in both categories, a feat that's only happened one other time since with [[Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack Uzo Aduba]]).

Asner started his voice acting career in 1981, but his roles in voice acting really took off in 1992 when he voiced Hoggish Greedly in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''. He would go on from that to role to voice many beloved, if somewhat gruff characters, as well as a plethora of one-shot characters for television, movies, and video games, his most famous recent role probably being Carl Frederickson from ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''.
