Bob Saget has reportedly died while on tour in Florida. 

TMZ first reported the comedian and actor's death, suggesting he died Sunday afternoon at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. First responders were called to his hotel room, but the actor was pronounced dead at the scene.

Saget is best known for playing for his role as Danny Tanner on Full House, a position he held for the better part of a decade, starring alongside the likes of John Stamos Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. He went on to have notable guest roles in several other shows, including Entourage, How I Met Your Mother and he also hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos for nearly 200 episodes.
