Sherman Hemsley Dies at 74

Sherman Hemsley passed away today at age 74 in his Texas home. Personally, I associate him with Judge Carl Robertson on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and B.P. Richfield on Dinosaurs; however, he'll likely be remembered best as the moved on up George Jefferson for the 11 wildly popular seasons of The Jeffersons. The role earned him multiple Emmy nominations and tons of popular and critical acclaim. Hopefully, right this second, he is somewhere calling someone "Whitey." Below watch a few videos of the man, including the famous George Jefferson Dance:
