Thank you for the laughs and for a life of intelligence and integrity. Katie Couric added on Instagram, "RIP Ed Asner, forever Lou Grant to me. 1929-2021."

Asner was a series regular on "Thunder Alley," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and "The Bronx Zoo," and he earned Emmys for his performances on the miniseries "Roots" and "Rich Man, Poor Man." Later in his life, Asner appeared in "Elf" alongside Will Ferrell and guest starred in "Cobra Kai."

The former president of the Screen Actors Guild, Asner is best known for playing Lou Grant in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and its spinoff series "Lou Grant." He also voiced the lead, Carl Fredricksen, in Pixar's Oscar-winning tear-jerker "Up."


When news broke Sunday that Ed Asner died at 91, Hollywood took to social media to pay tribute to the legendary actor, activist and philanthropist.
As one of the few TV actors to portray the same character in both a comedy and a drama, Asner is the most awarded male performer in Emmy history with seven wins — five of them for playing Lou Grant.

On social media, celebrities honored Asner's work as an actor and philanthropist, as well as his activism as a labor leader.

Since 2006 when she bought it for $5.65 million, Couric has also maintained a 1.55-acre estate in hoity-toity East Hampton, N.Y., with a rambling, Dutch Gambrel-style residence plus a poolside guest cottage and a tennis court where she and Molner were married in a small 2014 ceremony. Couric only moved about a dozen blocks south, to a brand-new, 14-residence boutique building that blends classical architecture with up-to-date amenities and where almost 1.5 years ago she and her financier husband, John Molner, shelled out $12,168,000 for a full-floor unit with four and potentially five bedrooms and five bathrooms in 3,966-square-feet.
One wing comprises an en suite master bedroom and an adjacent study or potential bedroom while the other wing has one en suite bedroom with a walk-in closet plus two more bedrooms that share a Jack ‘n’ Jill style bathroom. With over-sized sash windows and original parquet flooring, the graciously proportioned pre-war spread includes an ample living room with fireplace and three windows that provide an oblique, over the treetops and across Park Avenue view of the handsome steeple of Brick Presbyterian Church. Bedrooms are divided into two wings for maximum privacy. The spacious formal dining room has a similar view over Park Avenue while the large, country kitchen has an up close view into the windows of the neighboring building and includes a butler’s pantry, terra-cotta floor tiles, marble counters tops and a breakfast nook with cushioned built-in banquette seating.

Having upgraded to a substantially more expensive condominium less than a mile to the south, multi-Emmy and Peabody Award winning television host and journalist Katie Couric listed her longtime co-operative apartment on New York City’s posh Park Avenue with an asking price of $8.25 million.
