Jack Riley, star of “Newhart” and “Rugrats,” has passed away at the age of 80 from complications with pneumonia.
Riley was most famous as the character of Elliot Carlin on the largely successful sitcom “Newhart.” He appeared in all six seasons.
Our younger audience will remember his voice as the father of Tommy Pickles on the cartoon “Rugrats.”
Riley was featured in episodes of “MASH,” “Happy Days” and “Mary Tyler Moore” as well. But did you also know he was in a Taco Bell commercial back in 1983?
