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?
