For a long time, I thought he and Leona Helmsley were married.

I didn't realize he was that young. He's only thre yrs older than my parents. I guess he went bald prematurely and could play an older character. Even on All in the Family, Lionel was an adult. George and weezy were always considered middle aged.

sad.
3b (with 3c tendencies) on modified CG

Aww. That makes me sad.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
I enjoyed every role he played. Very talented actor with terrific timing.

I read a story once, that Norman Lear saw him on Broadway and wanted to use him on TV. Hemsley didn't want to break his Broadway contract and Norman Lear said, however long it took he would wait for him. The result was the Jeffersons!

RIP - wonderful man who gave a lot of laughter and pleasure to so many people.

I didn't know that, Frau.

I loved the Jeffersons. I loved the banter between George and Florence. What an awesome show.

May he rest in peace.
