Charles Grodin’s son, Nicholas, confirmed the news of this fathers passing in an email to CNN.
This is such sad news, I grew up watching many movies that starred Charles. When I spoke with John Ashton recently, we spoke about Midnight Run in great length and he told me what it was like to work with Charles and how much fun he had making Midnight Run with Charles and what a talented actor he was.
“Chuck was as good a person as he was an actor,” De Niro said in a statement issued through his publicist. “Midnight Run as a great project to work on, and Chuck made it an even better one. He will be missed. I am very very sad to hear of his passing.”
Charles was a writer, producer, director, actor and starred in “Midnight Run” “Heartbreak Kid” “Beethoven” “Fresno” and many more TV shows and Movies
Rest in peace Mr Grodin
