Sherman Hemsley, TV’s George Jefferson, Dies at 74 [VIDEO]
Sherman Hemsley is movin’ on up (hopefully!!) to a deluxe apartment in the sky. The actor that played George Jefferson, and somehow made it okay to say “Honky” on TV has passed away.
Hemsley was 74.
Jefferson’s character was first introduced as Archie Bunker’s neighbor on ‘All In The Family’, before spinning off into ‘The Jeffersons’ in 1975. The CBS show ran until 1985.
No cause of death has been released at this time.
