One of the most hilarious actors sadly has past away-yes Sherman Hemsley who played the lovable but hot head George Jefferson on The Jefferson’s. He past away yesterday at his home in El Paso, Texas at the age of 74.
This CBS show ran from 1975-1985 and was a huge hit and the first show to really highlight an African-American family as being successful and not as secondary characters. He went on to star on another fairly successful show called Amen and also was a guest star voice on Family Guy.
Rest in peace Georgie as his TV wife “Weezy” would call him.
