'Uncle Phil' Passes Away

What a sad way to kick off 2014.

James Avery, a.k.a. ‘Uncle Phil’ from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, passed away today at an L.A. Hos­pi­tal after suf­fer­ing com­pli­ca­tions from open heart surgery. He was 65 years old.

Avery starred in dozens of TV shows through the years — shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Closer,” “L.A. Law,” and “The Jef­fer­sons.” But of course, we will ALWAYS remem­ber him best as The Big Guy from Fresh Prince.

RIP, Uncle Phil.
