    Jason Wingreen, who played Harry the bartender on the ’70s sitcomAll in the Family and voiced Star Wars’ Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, has died at the age of 95.

    His son, Ned, confirmed the news to EW in a statement. “He died at home in Los Angeles on Dec. 25, 2015 after a brief illness. He is survived by his one son (me) and two grandchildren, and his sister Harriet Wingreen (the former NY Philharmonic pianist) and her family.”

    Wingreen has a bevy of acting credits to his name, but the one fromAll in the Family “allowed [him] to retire,” he remarked to The Classic TV History Blog in 2010. Years later in an interview with StarTrek.com, which mostly pertained to his guest starring role of Dr. Linke in Star Trek: The Original Series, he explained his All in the Family gig began as a one-off.
