Sad news being reported from TMZ. Sherman Hemsley has reportedly passed away today at the age of 74. Hemsley, of course, emerged as a television force with his role in All In The Family that of course led to his role as George Jefferson in The Jeffersons.
The George Jefferson Stroll is a national treasure that you’ve definitely attempted at least once and is probably still being reenacted after strikes are thrown in bowling alleys across the country.
While most link Hemsley to his role as George Jefferson, I’ll remember him for his cameos in Fresh Prince – once as Judge Robertson and again as Will and Lisa’s nemesis in couple’s counseling.
R.I.P. to one of the pioneers.
