It’s a sad day today: Fred “Rerun” Berry has passed away, apparently from natural causes, at the age of 52. By his passing, he leaves behind an eternal mystery:
He wore his red beret and suspenders in real life, and it was unclear whether he originally brought his own style to the character of Rerun or whether he was forever mimicking the goofball character that made him famous.
Perhaps some day, a future episode of “The E! True Hollywood Story” will get to the bottom of this. In the meantime, rest in peace, Fred Berry.
