George Segal, The Goldbergs Actor Dead at 87

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

His wife, Sonia Segal, confirmed the news Tuesday.

"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 role in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? the performance that earned him an Oscar nod.

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.

RIP Pops.
