Actor Ben Stiller revealed in a tweet early this morning that his father Jerry Stiller passed away due to natural causes.

Jerry Stiller was a very funny comedian who played two of my favorite characters on T.V. Frank Costanza on Seinfeld (see above and see also this funny iconic blooper) and Arthur Spooner on King of Queens.

Mr. Stiller gave me some of the best laughs of my life at some of the most trying times of my life. RIP Mr. Stiller. You have ‘Serenity Now’.
