    I loved him in "Where's Poppa?" and "King Rat".

    Mr. Segal was a very talented actor.

    Oscar-nominated actor George Segal has died of complications from a bypass surgery. He was 87.

    His wife, Sonia Segal, confirmed the news Tuesday in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.

    "The family is devastated to announce that this morning George Segal passed away due to complications from bypass surgery," she said.

    Segal's acting credits span decades, beginning in the 1960s. He is best known for his roles in films including Ship of Fools, Where's Poppa?, Blume in Love, For the Boys, King Rat, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? — the performance that earned him an Oscar nod.

    He also made numerous guest appearances over the years on several television shows, including Entourage, Boston Legal, Private Practice and Pushing Daisies.

    On the big screen, Segal appeared in supporting roles as Jake Gyllenhaal's father in Love & Other Drugs and Christopher Plummer's doctor and friend in Elsa & Fred.

    He also won two Golden Globe Awards — one for his performance in the romantic comedy A Touch of Class and another for his well-known role as magazine publisher Jack Gallo on the NBC sitcom Just Shoot Me!

    Most recently, Segal played the role of Albert "Pops" Solomon in ABC's 1980s-set comedy series The Goldbergs for the past eight years.

    The last episode that he filmed before he died will air on April 7, and the series is expected to pay tribute to the late actor on air, according to Deadline.

    Carbon Copy was slammed by some critics when first released.

    Some took offense at it's very avant-garde theme.

    As I recall, some found the plot offensive in 1981.

    From Rotten Tomatoes:
    Walter Whitney is a successful executive who resides in an upscale Southern California suburb. Like all of his friends and neighbors, Walter is white, and he is shocked when he learns he has a son he never knew about -- black teen Roger Porter (Denzel Washington). Despite his surprise, Walter welcomes Roger into his home; unfortunately, the less accepting Mrs. Whitney (Susan Saint James) boots both of them out of the house, and Walter's racist boss fires him, leaving him in a tough spot.
