Martin Mull – The actors of “Clue and Arrested Development” passed away at home on June 27th, after a valiant fight against a long illne

Martin Mull passed away on Friday, according to his daughter. He rose to fame in the 1970s as a hipster because to his esoteric comedy and acting, and he went on to become a popular guest star on comedies like “Arrested Development” and “Roseanne.”

Maggie Mull, a comic artist and TV writer, said her father passed away at home on Thursday following “a valiant fight against a long illness.”

Mull, who was also a painter and a guitarist, rose to national prominence in the satirical soap opera “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman,” which was developed by Norman Lear, and in its spinoff, “Fernwood Tonight.”

“I am heartbroken to share that my father passed away at home on June 27th, after a valiant fight against a long illness,” his daughter Maggie posted on Instagram to notify his passing.

Mull received an Emmy nomination in 2016 for his guest performance on “Veep” as political assistant Bob Bradley. He had lately made cameo cameos in “Grace and Frankie” “Not Dead Yet” and “The Afterparty.”

In 2015 he appeared on the comedy shows “Community” on NBC (as George Perry, the father of Gillian Jacobs’ Britta Perry) and “Life in Pieces” on CBS.

From 2008 to 2013, Mull was a recurring character on “Two and a Half Men” as Russell, an illicit drug user and dealer who appeared at Charlie’s funeral in the first episode of Season 9. The actor also returned to “Arrested Development” in the role of Gene Parmesan, a fairly stupid private eye who frequently appears in absurd

“He was known for excelling at every creative discipline imaginable and also for doing Red Roof Inn commercials,” Maggie Mull wrote on Instagram. “He’d find that joke amusing. He was always funny. My father will be greatly missed by his wife and daughter, his friends and coworkers, fellow artists, comedians, and musicians, and—as befits a truly extraordinary person—many, many pets.”

Mull, known for his blonde hair and neatly maintained mustache, was born in Chicago, raised in Ohio and Connecticut, and studied art in Rhode Island and Rome.

His first effort into the entertainment industry was as a songwriter, writing the 1970 semi-hit “A Girl Named Johnny Cash” for vocalist Jane Morgan.
