Rob Reiner, William Shatner, Rosanna Arquette and Jon Cryer have led tributes to Hollywood legend Carl Reiner following his death.

The iconic actor died in his Beverly Hills home on Monday night (29 June), surrounded by his family, according to TMZ.

His devastated son Rob wrote a short statement on Twitter as he told followers: ‘Last night my dad passed away. As I write this my heart is hurting. He was my guiding light.’

Actor William Shatner also took to Twitter as he wrote: ‘Condolences to the family of Carl Reiner. From the writers room of Sid Caesar to recreating those times for the Dick Van Dyke show, Carl was a master at his craft. I knew him only peripherally but it was a pleasure to have known him.’

While Rosanna Arquette tweeted: ‘This is Very sad news. Rest In Peace and power Carl Reiner gratitude for all the laughter you have given us through the years.

Mia Farrow wrote: ‘We lost a person who gave us great times-countless laughs. He was brilliant. And kind. I met him only once but will never forget his gentle thoughtfulness. He was with us through good times and hard times. Thank you Carl Reiner. His memory will be a blessing.’

Frozen star Josh Gad stated: ‘As if 2020 weren’t cruel enough. Goodbye to one of the greatest comedic minds of all time. Thank you for always making us laugh and for always giving us joy. My deepest condolences go out to the entire Reiner family. RIP #CarlReiner’

Jon Cryer – who worked with Reiner on Two and a Half Men – was one of the first Hollywood stars to share his reaction to the news.

He tweeted: ‘The brilliant and hilarious Carl Reiner hosted the Director’s Guild awards for decades before his health forced him to take the night off. They asked me to sub in for him. Here’s the letter he sent me…’

The letter read: ‘Dear John, I thank you for filling in for me tonight. I wish with all my heart that you fail, or if you don’t, that you are no more than adequate. I don’t want to have to compete with you for this non-paying job.’

Reiner then signed off the letter with: ‘Carl Reiner. For 22 years the best host the DGA ever had.’

Jon continued in another tweet: ‘Working with, and getting to know Carl Reiner were two of the great thrills of my career. A lovely man who lived a wonderful life and brought joy to literally millions.

‘And fwiw, I killed at the DGA Awards that night. Started the show by reading his letter aloud.’

Reiner was best known for his duo with Mel Brooks, and starred in films like It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World, and The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming. 

He also famously starred as Saul Bloom in the Ocean’s Eleven series.

Reiner created The Dick Van Dyke Show, in which he starred as comedian Alan Brady, and is credited with discovering Mary Tyler Moore.

He had initially starred in the leading role of the show before the pilot, Head Of The Family, was renamed and recast.

Most recently, Reiner voiced Carl Reineroceros in Toy Story 4. And kids will also recognise Reiner as PG Biggershot in The Adventures of Rocky and Billwinkle, and the voice of Larry in Duck Duck Goose.
