Ed Asner made TV viewers laugh during the '70s as blustery newsman Lou Grant on the classic TV series, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."

But in the '80s, his comedic prowess was overshadowed by his passionate — and often controversial —political convictions. In 1990 he was arrested with Martin Sheen for protesting U.S. involvement in El Salvador.

Recently, Asner voiced the character Carl Fredricksen in the Oscar winning animated movie "Up" (2009).
