BELOVED comedian and actor passed away today at his home

Comedian and actor Martin Mull has died at the age of 80. His daughter, Maggie Mull, announced on Instagram that he passed away at home “after a valiant fight against a long illness.”

“He was known for excelling at every creative discipline imaginable and also for doing Red Roof Inn commercials,” Maggie wrote. “That joke would make him laugh.”

Mull was beloved for his roles as coach Willard Kraft on *Sabrina the Teenage Witch*, Leon Carp on *Roseanne*, and Gene Parmesan on *Arrested Development*. He was nominated for his first Emmy in 2016 for his role as Bob Bradley on *Veep*.

Maggie added, “Friends, coworkers, fellow artists, comedians, musicians, and, most importantly, many, many dogs will miss my dad very much. His wife and daughter will also miss him a lot. I loved him very much.”

Mull’s diverse career included writing the 1985 mockumentary *The History of White People in America* with Fred Willard.
