RIP Ed Asner

it is with big sorrow that Ed Asner, to whom Disney fans know as Carl Fredericksen from PIXAR's Up, my favorite PIXAR film has passed away earlier today, aged 91. 

After a long career on stage, film and television, mostly television, Asner worked to the very end and even has been recently heard in the trailers for Disney's Dug, a bunch of shorts that act as sequels to the movie that are coming this Fall on Disney+. 

Asner won Emmys in the late 70's and early 80's for being on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Lou Grant, and was the perfect choice to play elderly Carl Frederickson and my hats off to him. He was funny. My family loved him and he will be missed.

I can't believe he's gone. But he leaves behind a legacy that we will always remember him for. A legacy not just for UP but for so much more.

Oh died this year. :(

Sad to hear that he's no longer with us - but you're right, he had a LONG and great career in acting. Before he was Carl, I also knew him as J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man, Hudson in Gargoyles, Sgt. Cosgrove in Freakazoid! and much, much more.

Well, at least Carl will join Ellie in heaven.

He's one of my fav voice actors since the early 90's
