We Say Good-Bye To George Gaynes

By  |  0 Comments

The ‘Police Academy’ actor has passed away at age 98.

George Gaynes, known for playing Commandant Lassard in seven Police Academy movies, has died. He was born in Helsinki, back when Finland was still part of the Russian Empire, on May 16, 1917.

Interestingly, after starring in the rather risque Police Academy, George went on to play the far more wholesome role of Punky Brewster’s adopted father in the show by the same name.

That said, we’d like to remember him for this one iconic scene in the first Police Academy movie.
