A very talented actor, who is being remembered today as all-around wonderful man by the countless people who he has known and worked with, is no longer with us. George Segal passed away yesterday due to complications from bypass surgery. He was 87 years old.
His career spanned six decades, including an Oscar-nomination for his performance in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, but I'll always know him best as Pops in The Goldberg's. The relationship that his character has with Adam Goldberg (played by Sean Giambrone) is heartwarming and reminds me very much of the relationship that I had with my grandfather. Thank you for the memories, Mr. Segal. You will definitely be missed.
