Al Molinaro, R.I.P.

Actor Al Molinaro passed away at the age of 96 on Friday due to gall stones.

Molinaro is best known to TV audiences for his portrayal of Murray the Cop on The Odd Couple and Big Al Delvecchio on Happy Days and its shortlived spin-off Joanie & Chachi. I was most familiar with the latter role and his trademark phrase, “Yup! Yup! Yup!”

Molinaro took a somewhat unusual path to acting. For many years while living in California, Molinaro ran a collection agency and would eventually get involved in real estate. These ventures would made him independently wealthy. Upon achieving this wealth, Molinaro would pursue his dream of acting and his dream came true.

He also did many TV commercials as you can see here with Super Bowl champion William “The Refrigerator” Perry.
