Hollywood Pays Respects to Carl Reiner

Earlier today came the tragic news that comedy legend and cultural icon Carl Reiner had passed away. The comedian, actor, director, and writer was 98 at the time of his death which occurred at his home where he was surrounded by his family according to a report from TMZ. Made famous by his comedic antics, including a partnership with Mel Brooks, Reiner was perhaps best known to many as being the creator and co-star of the iconic series, The Dick Van Dyke Show. He would go on to star in and appear in multiple shows and films, even stepping behind the camera to direct classics like The Jerk and The Man with Two Brains.
