COMEDIC LEGEND & ACTOR, JERRY STILLER, DIES AT 92—BEN STILLER SHARES TRIBUTE ON TWITTER
Monday, May 11, 2020

Jerry Stiller, best known for his comedic roots and fan-favorite fatherly roles, has passed away of natural causes at 92-years-old. His son Ben Stiller, who followed in his father’s comedic footsteps, paid tribute to his late father on Twitter.

Before fame, Brooklyn-native Jerry Stiller was a soldier who served in the World War II. It wasn’t until after his return that he started his acting career as one-half of comedy duo Stiller & Meara—alongside his wife of 62 years, Anne Meara. Despite roles in films like The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974), Hairspray (1988), Zoolander (2001) and The Heartbreak Kid (2007), where he acted alongside his son Ben Stiller, he wouldn’t land his breakout role until he was cast as Frank Costanza on Seinfeld—hot-tempered high-strung father to Jason Alexander’s character, George Costanza. He was also cast on TV sitcom The King of Queens as firecracker father-in-law, Arthur Spooner. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and fans of Jerry Stiller. Below are some of Jerry’s most memorable scenes.
