Stiller left Seinfeld in 1998 to become a series regular on The King Of Queens as the father of Leah Remini's character Carrie Heffernan.

"So sorry. He made me laugh till I cried on many occasions", Rogen wrote on Twitter. "Love you Dad", his son Ben Stiller wrote in a message on Twitter. "He was so cherished". "I just wanted to get him off my back". A great actor, a great man, a lovely friend.

The next year, Stiller landed one of the biggest roles of his ad career.

While Jerry first rose to fame in the 1960s as part of a comedy duo alongside wife Anne Meara, the amusing man found solo success when he joined the cast of Seinfeld in its fifth season. The two fell in love, married in 1954 and had two children: Amy and Ben.

Parry Shen told a great story about Stiller saving his job on King of Queens.

Stiller was in only 26 of the 172 Seinfeld episodes but each appearance was memorable, whether he was screaming "serenity now!" in a tense situation, trying on a bra for men or explaining the odd rituals of Festivus, the December 23 holiday he established as an alternative to Christmas.

Seinfeld's John O'Hurley called him a "wonderful man". "He made everything funnier!"

It was a performance that earned Stiller widespread acclaim as well as an Emmy nomination. He as part of the cast of "The Ed Sullivan Show" from 1955 to 1969 and was a regular guest star on TV shows throughout the '60s, '70s and '80s. Because the scene slowly progresses, Stiller bellows, "You need a piece of me?!" and the complete set dissolves in laughter.
