George Coe, one of the O.G. “Saturday Night Live” stars, died in Santa Monica over the weekend.
Coe was part of the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” comedy troupe that launched ‘SNL’ in 1975 — and went on to have a very successful career in movies and TV. He had roles in “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The West Wing,” and “L.A. Law.”
Most recently, Coe voiced a main character on “Archer.” He played Woodhouse, Archer’s butler.
His big movie roles included … “Kramer vs. Kramer” and “Blind Date.”
Variety first reported his death.
Fun fact: Coe held the record for oldest person to join ‘SNL.’ He was 46 when the show started. Leslie Jones just took that title … she was 47 when she joined in 2014.
