Carl Reiner, Legendary Writer, Dead at 98

Carl Reiner, legendary writer, director and actor, died Monday night at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 98.

News of his death was confirmed by his son, director Rob Reiner.

The nine-time Emmy-winning and Grammy-winning icon acted in over 40 films, held countless TV roles, directed 15 movies, and wrote more than 20 books, among them memoirs and children’s stories.

“Honestly, the only reason I remember for wanting to be an actor is that I wanted to sleep late. I swear that’s true. Since I was a kid I used to say, ‘I’m going into a field where I can sleep late,’” he once quipped to The Post in 1958.

LOL! You’re going to be missed, Carl. Have fun in heaven.
