Actor Sherman Hemsley, 74, best known for playing Archie Bunker’s former neighbor George Jefferson in the “All in the Family” spin-off “The Jeffersons,” has died at his home in El Paso, Texas.
According to the sources that it appears Hemsley passed away from natural causes. Hemsley at first became famous for his debuts on “All in the Family” as George Jefferson, the character that would ultimately make him famous.
Such a big fame of George and Louise ‘Weezy’ Jefferson that they were spun-off into their own sitcom, The Jeffersons, which ran for Eleven-seasons between 1975 – 1985, becoming in the process the longest-running sitcom with a mainly black cast in American history.
Hemsley later featured in the NBC sitcom Amen, and repeatedly made on-screen appearances with his Jeffersons co-star Isabel Sanford until her death in 2009. Hemsley was also a skilled singer, and released the single ‘Ain’t That A Kick In The Head’ song in 1989.
