Hollywood has lost another legend. Full House patriarch and beloved comedian Bob Saget has died. Sources confirmed that the former America's Funniest Home Videos host was found unresponsive at an Orlando, Florida Ritz Carlton, TMZ reports. The report notes that the Orange County Sheriff's Department and the fire department went to his hotel room at about 4 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 9 after hotel security found the actor in his room. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators are still trying to uncover the circumstances surrounding his death but do not suspect foul play. Saget was 65-years-old.
"Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room," the Orange County Sheriff's Department tweeted. "The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case."
The Philadelphia native and Temple University alum became an instant star when he was cast as Danny Tanner on Full House where he starred alongside the Olsen twins and more for 10 years. Netflix later revived it for Fuller House in 2016 where he frequently reprised his role.
Hours before his death, Saget tweeted about performing in Jacksonville, Florida. "Appreciative audience. Thanks again to [Tim Wilkins] for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I'm happily addicted again to this s—," he wrote. He was also scheduled to perform in Ponte Vidra Beach, Florida.
As news spreads about Saget's death, friends and fans mourn his loss. The world is sharing their condolences on Twitter.
