Comedian, actor, writer and producer Garry Shandling reportedly died Thursday at a Los Angeles hospital at the age of 66. TMZ first reported his death.
According to the outlet, Shandling's death was "sudden," and he "was healthy and speaking to people on Thursday morning." He was even out with Kathy Griffin and Bob Odenkirk this past weekend. The cause of death is still unknown.
Shandling was in the comedy business for more than 40 years. He started by writing scripts for sitcoms like "Sanford and Son" and later launched two Emmy-nominated hit shows.
"The Larry Sanders Show" garnered 56 Emmy nods during its six-year run.
But even after those shows ended, Shandling continued work in the entertainment industry, appearing in blockbuster films like "Iron Man 2" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," as well as hosting the Emmys several times.
