Wonder how much filming of season two he had done ?
I've been trying to look into this - there doesn't seem to be any concrete reports of how many episodes were in the can. It premieres in late January and that's only two months from now... dare I say it, it's safe to say that he'd be there for the first few... maybe even half.
I wonder if... in his state of health if he and the producers didn't anticipate any of this and film a video will for the show or something... imagine if the show were to continue for years? I'm sure his (the actor's) eventual death had come up in logistical planning. I'm sure the writers are scrambling now.
Just so sad to have it happen right now. But I've read that Larry was happy to have his family all together for Thanksgiving...
