The original go-getter

The Gilmore family lost its patriarch today.

Edward Herrmann, who portrayed Richard Gilmore during The Gilmore Girls’ seven-year run on the CW, died today in Los Angeles after battling brain cancer.

I first remember seeing Herrmann in a small role in the original Great Gatsby film. Even then, his distinctive voice and upper-crust persona were in evidence.

Numerous obituaries list his Tony and Emmy award-winning work, but I’ll always think of him as Richard Gilmore, the rich grandpa who we’d love to have in our corner.

Logan was such a goob…am I right?
