After TMZ first reported his death earlier today, Shandling’s tragic passing was confirmed by the LAPD.

Shandling is most known for his two celebrated shows It’s Garry Shandling’s Show and The Larry Sanders Show. Both have been considered classic series that had a profound influence on the shows that came after them.

Lovers of recent blockbusters may recognize him as the senator in Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier who got to say the line “Hail Hydra.”

Shandling recently appeared on Jerry Seinfeld‘s hit online series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Not only did Shandling talk about his health and funeral, but the episode is actually titled “It’s Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive.”

Rest in peace.
