Two And A Half Men Actors You May Not Know Passed Away


There are few bigger legends in the world of comedy than actor, writer, director, and producer Carl Reiner. While some may know his son Rob Reiner better, father Carl crafted some of the wackiest comedies of the 20th century, including “Oh, God!” with George Burns, “The Jerk,” and “The Man with Two Brains” with Steve Martin, and “Summer Rental” with John Candy. Like his son Rob, who guest-starred as Jess’s (Zooey Deschanel) father on “New Girl,” Carl had a recurring role as a father figure of Charlie Sheen’s character on “Two and a Half Men,” playing TV producer Marty Pepper, the boyfriend of Charlie’s mother Evelyn (Holland Taylor).

Though more well-known for being a producer, writer, and director, the 2000s sitcom was by no means Reiner’s only on-screen role, and his acting reel is actually longer than his directing resume. Modern audiences may remember him for his role as Saul Bloom in all three “Oceans 11” movies, but he also had small parts in many of his own films, while also being the voice of God himself in “History of the World, Part I.” His final performance came in “Toy Story 4,” where he appropriately played Carl Reineroceros. At the age of 98 in 2020, Reiner died of natural causes.
