My dear friend Norman Lloyd has died.— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) May 11, 2021
He was 106. He would quote things Chaplin, Hitchcock, and Judd Apatow said to him - in the same sentence. He saw a his first World Series game in 1928 (“Babe Ruth tore his pants! We roared!”) and his last in 2017.

Norman Lloyd who worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood history passed away at the age of 106. Lloyd's friend and fellow producer Dean Hargrove confirmed his death, saying that he died on Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles. As per a report in Deadline Hollywood, Norman Lloyd died peacefully in his sleep. The veteran actor was best known for his roles as villain in Hitchcock's Saboteur and as Dr Daniel Auschlander on TV's St Elsewhere.
He has many films to his credit. His last movie appearance as an actor was in the 2015 comedy film 'Trainwreck', starring Amy Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow. Judd took to his Instagram and remembered the late actor. Sharing his photos, Jude wrote, "Norman Lloyd loved to tell stories and make people laugh. I was watching an interview with Ethan Hawke a few months ago and he was talking about being a kid shooting Dead Poet's Society. He said one day Norman walked up to him and said 'pay attention. It isn't usually like this. This is special.' He said that moment was a giant lesson for him."
He further added, "Every moment with Norman was special. He loved to tell this story about his wife Peggy. She was in bed and was very ill. She said to him, 'Norman, how long have we been married?' He replied, 'seventy years'. She said, "I think we're going to make it." I miss him already. Amy Schumer dropped heart emoticons under the post.
Norma has been a part of great film and he delivered spectacular performances in it that proved his versatility as an actor. Apart from Trainwreck, his movie work also included Martin Scorses's The Age of Innocence and for playing the headmaster in Robin Williams starrer Dead Poets Society.
