Hollywood Mourns the Loss of Beloved Actor Martin Mull at 80

Martin Mull, famed for his roles in “Roseanne” and “Clue,” passed away at 80. His daughter Maggie Mull shares heartfelt tributes, highlighting his legacy and impact on Hollywood.

Bollywood Fever: Hollywood is saying farewell to a beloved actor. Martin Mull—known for his iconic roles as Leon Carp on Roseanne and Colonel Mustard in Clue—died on June 27 at the age of 80. His daughter, Maggie Mull, shared the news on Instagram.

“I am heartbroken to share that my father passed away at home on June 27th, after a valiant fight against a long illness,” she wrote on June 28. “He was known for excelling at every creative discipline imaginable and also for doing Red Roof Inn commercials. He would find that joke funny. He was never not funny.”

Maggie—whom Martin welcomed with his third wife Wendy Haas—also highlighted the incredible impact he had on those he loved. “My dad will be deeply missed by his wife and daughter, by his friends and coworkers, by fellow artists and comedians and musicians,” she continued, “and—the sign of a truly exceptional person—by many, many dogs. I loved him tremendously.”

The Emmy-nominated star was mourned by several of his former television colleagues, including fellow Roseanne alum Michael Fishman. “Martin Mull is a legend,” he wrote on Instagram. “He was a tremendous talent, who was always funny. As amazing as he was on camera, he was even more incredible off. The world was better with him in it. Perhaps the other side needed more laughter.”

Martin, who held two degrees in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design, initially started his career in the music industry before transitioning to the screen. “I was on the road for about 15 years or a little longer actually,” he told Smashing in 2018. “I just got to where the road giveth and the road taketh away.”

Eventually, Martin and keyboard player Wendy—who he wed in 1982 after divorces from Kristin Johnson and Sandra Baker—decided to take a break and start a family. As he put it, “So the band broke up, but the band stayed together because the band was me and my wife.”

Martin’s true passion, however, remained in a different field. “The painting has always been number one for me,” he said. “It’s been the most important thing I do because it’s personal, you know.”

In addition to his memorable film roles in the ’80s and ’90s, Martin also made notable appearances on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Arrested Development, and Two and a Half Men. According to Sabrina star Melissa Joan Hart, he had a larger-than-life presence as Principal Kraft on the ’90s show.

“I have such fond memories of working with him and being in awe of his huge body of work,” Melissa shared on social media following his passing. “He once told me that he takes every job he’s offered just in case the train comes to an end, which in this business tends to halt quickly. But he was an artist who liked to paint and build things with his hands, a musician and a wonderful man who I am better for knowing.”

Melissa noted that she has pieces of Martin’s artwork displayed in her home, which she’ll cherish even more now. “He will be missed, but this world has benefited from his being here,” she added. “My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.”

Martin Mull’s legacy in Hollywood, his artistic talents, and his infectious humor have left an indelible mark on his colleagues, fans, and loved ones. He will be deeply missed.
