Carl Reiner, one of the most prolific entertainers in the history of show business has died … TMZ has learned.
We’re told Reiner died Monday night at his Beverly Hills home. We’re told his family was with him when he passed.
Reiner was a producer. He was also a director. He was also an actor. He was also a Grammy winner. He won 9 Emmys in over 7 decades. He has more than 400 credits.
Where to begin? Well, for all you youngins’ … you may have caught Carl in “Toy Story 4.”
For most people … they remember Carl best for “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” which he created and starred in. Carl played the role of a very temperamental comedian — Alan Brady — who terrorized Dick Van Dyke‘s character and the other writers. Oh, and there was this new actress Carl cast for Dick’s wife — Mary Tyler Moore.
Carl made a best-selling album with Mel Brooks called “2000 Years with Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks” which earned a Grammy nomination and sparked his writing career.
There were other smash hits, including directing “Oh God” with George Burns and “The Jerk” with Steve Martin. He worked with Martin on several movies, including “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid,” “Man with Two Brains” and “All of Me.”
Reiner appeared in a bunch of TV shows and movies, including “The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming,” and “Enter Laughing.”
The directing credits are endless — “Summer Rental” with John Candy, “Summer School” with Mark Harmon, “That Old Feeling” with Bette Midler and “Sibling Rivalry” with Kirstie Alley and Carrie Fisher.
Carl appeared on lots of hit TV shows, including “Two and a Half Men,” “Hot in Cleveland” and “House.” He was also in “Ocean’s 11” and “Ocean’s Thirteen.”
We last talked to him in 2013, leaving “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Reiner received the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor back in 2000.
Did we mention one of his three kids is Rob Reiner? Definitely like father like son.
Carl’s wife, Estelle, whom he married in 1943, died in 2008.
Carl was 98.
