Sad news in the entertainment world tonight, as we get word that actor-comedian Bob Saget has died, according to an exclusive breaking report from TMZ.

Bob Saget has died at the age of 65 … TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources connected to the iconic comedian and actor — most famous for his starring role as Danny Tanner in ‘Full House’ — tell us he passed away Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando.

The Sheriff’s Department and the fire department responded to the hotel around 4 PM ET … after hotel security had found Bob in his room. We’re told he was pronounced dead on the scene, but the circumstances of his death are still unclear.

Bob’s been touring the country lately, hitting a lot of destinations throughout the state of Florida, including in Orlando, which got started in September and was supposed to take him through May.

Saturday night, he was in Jacksonville doing a show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall … where he actually shouted out the crowd early Sunday morning.

Bob is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and 3 children

In an update moments ago, TMZ added these details:

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says Bob’s death appears to be a mystery to them … because they say, so far, there’s no signs of anything fishy in the case that would raise any red flags. 

OCSO says, “On arrival, (deputies) located a man who was unresponsive in a hotel room. The man, identified as Robert Lane Saget, (DOB: 5/17/1956), was pronounced deceased on scene. We have no information on cause of death, and detectives have found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. This is all the information we have for release at this time and we do not anticipate further updates.”

While the comedian’s cause of death is unknown at this time, it’s worth noting that the TMZ site has updated its headline — which broke as “BOB SAGET, DEAD AT 65,” now has been updated to read: “No Foul Play, Drugs Suspected.”

Saget may be best known for his leading role on ’80s sitcom “Full House” and as the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” as well as a stand-up comedian, though he was also a producer.

As this is a breaking story, RedState will provide updates as details become available.
