Live Poll: Face-Off: R.I.P. Ed Asner—Ironman of the Airwaves

While those of today's generation may not recognize the name Edward Asner, you'll most certainly recognize the man. From his now gravely voice-over work, to his comedic and dramatic talents that spanned 8 decades, Ed will forever be remembered. To most of us he "is" and always will be Lou Grant. Comedic or the dramatic version. He is the only man that played the same character on television on two shows that went from a comedy show character to a dramatic one. He won Emmy's on both shows. We will never really miss Ed. He will live forever in our minds and in reruns.

Ed was in over 400 titles listed on IMDb, so it would be impossible to ask of you what was your favorite role or favorite title from TV or the The Movies.

So we ask this simple question. What was it you liked best about Ed? His Comedy, Drama, Voice-Over or all of his works?

@K_PAXTON,

Thank you for creating this poll

May I humbly suggest that you change:

While those of today's generation will not recognize the name Edward Asner,

To:

While those of today's generation may not recognize the name Edward Asner,

Sadly, with the passing of Ed Asner, Betty White is the sole surviving regular cast member of The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–1977).

@dan_dassow

I changed the line to include "may"

I also saw that bit of trivia on Ed's page too. That he and Betty were the last survivors.

Long live Betty!!!!

@K_PAXTON,

Thank you for making the edit.

Actually, I remember Ed Asner and Betty White separately mentioning in interviews that they were they last two surviving cast members.

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."
