Garry Shandling Dead at Age 66

Film and television actor and incredibly underrated comedic genius Garry Shandling has died at the age of 66.

According to the report at TMZ, Shandling was not suffering from any immediate illness, at least not one that anyone knows at this point. So the passing must have been sudden. There was reportedly a 911 call made to Shandling’s home and the actor arrived alive to the LA hospital before passing away.

Garry Shandling was an understated, comedic genius whose breakout role came on HBO’s 90s comedy The Larry Sanders Show. One of his more underrated roles came in the ensemble drama Hurlyburly opposite Sean Penn and Kevin Spacey, and Shandling has popped up in brief roles as Senator Stern in Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
