no title

A legend has died!

David Smyrl, the actor best-known for playing Mr. Handford on Sesame Street, died on Tuesday at Lukenau Medical Center in Philadelphia. He was 80 years old.

Smyrl joined Sesame Street in 1990, playing the former fireman-turned-store owner, and was with the show through 1998.

He played the character a little less grumpy than did the previous actor, Leonard Jackson, and Smyrl was well-liked throughout his tenure on the show.

According to reports, the actor died of lung cancer, a disease he had developed back in January.

The actor also appeared routinely on the sitcom Benson in the 1970s, winning a People's Choice Award for his work there, and he played contractor Sam Lucas on The Cosby Show, on which he also was a writer.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Mary-Louise Parker DENIES Calling Shop Owner The F-Word & Totes Did NOT Threaten To Kill Him!

What a nasty mess! It's like a real life episode of Weeds, sans the weed!

Earlier we reported that Weeds actress Mary-Louise Parker had been accused of calling a NY antique shop owner the F-word AND that she had threatened his life(!) after she got into a disagreement with him over the price of some bags…

But her rep has since REJECTED these accusations, saying that yes, Mary DID go to the Saugerties, NY store on Jan 2 but it was on behalf of her friend who was owed money by the owner because he had sold one of her friend's bags.

According to the rep, the owner refused to pay Mz.Parker's acquaintance and when the situation started to get heated, Mary LEFT the store. Mary never said ANYTHING homophobic to the owner, and definitely did NOT threaten his life.

Her rep also claims that the store owner is just taking advantage of Mary's celeb status…

For what ends, we're not really sure.
