    Bentley from The Jeffersons has passed away! The AP reports that Paul Benedict who played Mr. Bentley was found dead by his brother on Martha's Vineyard. He was 70. His brother said his death was still being investigated by authorities. Rest in peace, Paul Benedict.

    He was cool as hell... wasn't he in Spinal Tap?

    Is he the one who would walk on Jefferson's back? or was it the other way around?

    I loved his voice, absolutely incredible

    Aww, that's a shame.:frown1: He was a great character actor in his day. I seem to recall him being on Columbo and Mc Millan and Wife as well.

    May he rest in peace.

    I hope it wasn't foul play.:confused::eek:

    used to have my first room-mate (six foot tall, 200 lb ex-prep school football player) do it to me often
