Bob Saget narrated all the nine seasons of the original 2005 sitcom as an older version of central character Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor). On January 9, he was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, after performing a stand-up comedy set on tour, at the age of 65.
In a conversation with Entertainment Weekly, the spin-off executive producers Craig Thomas, Carter Bays and Pam Fryman remembered Bob Saget as a ‘truly legendary human.’ “The wit, the wisdom, and, above all, the kindness fans heard in Bob Saget's voice (as Ted Mosby in the year 2030) was no act,” the trio said. “It's who Bob really was. And it's how all of us in the How I Met Your Mother family will always remember him. R.I.P. to a truly legendary human. You'll be so missed, Bob, because you were so loved.”
According to People, the beloved actor was laid to rest on Friday at a private funeral in Los Angeles, attended by his Full House costars and his other famous close friends.
HIMYM star Josh Radnor paid an emotional tribute to the late co-star by sharinga heartfelt lengthy Twitter thread about his "older, wiser me," and describing their “special bond” while recalling how Saget quelled his imposter syndrome during the early days of the long-running show.
Bob Saget was the older wiser ‘me' for nine years on How I Met Your Mother. He was the kindest, loveliest, funniest, most supportive man. The easiest person to be around. A mensch among mensches. 1/7
