Sherman Hemsley, the actor who made the grumpy, opinionated George Jefferson of "The Jeffersons" one of television's most memorable characters and a symbol for urban upward mobility, has died at the age of 74.

Police in El Paso, Texas, said late yesterday that Hemsley was found dead at a local home where neighbours said he'd lived for years.

A statement from police said no foul play is suspected and that the exact cause of death is pending.

Hemsley, whose films include 1979's "Love at First Bite," 1987's "Stewardess School" and 1987's "Ghost Fever," released an album, "Ain't That a Kick in the Head," in 1989.
