Fred "Rerun" Berry Dead
By Joal Ryan

Fred Berry was well into his 20s when he was cast as a high-schooler on the 1970s sitcom What's Happening!! Well into middle age, he was still playing the role

Berry, who portrayed the beret-wearing, suspender-clad teen known as Rerun on the 1976-79 series, and was rarely without his signature accessories in the nearly quarter-century since, was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment Tuesday, E! has learned. He was 52.


Berry's agent, Arlene Thorton, says the actor died sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning in his bed. The Los Angeles coroner is planning to perform an autopsy to determine cause of death. There were no signs of foul play, Thorton said.


Berry recently cameoed in the David Spade comedy, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, and looked for love on E!'s Star Dates. According to IMDb.com, Berry was a veteran groom, marrying six times to four women.


He played himself in an episode of NBC's Scrubs last April. Per usual, he wore the Rerun red beret, and the Rerun red suspenders.


Until recently, Berry had been one of the on-demand telephone friends for the new service HollywoodIsCalling.com.


"I bet you that I've made more calls than anyone on this service," Berry told the Washington Post in August.


Never able to shake the role that made him famous, Berry reprised his Rerun self in 1985-86 for the updated What's Happening!! series, What's Happening Now!.

ReRun, The Doobie Bros., and bootlegging. The three are forever joined in my mind, as well.

Roger: What's for Dinner?
Shirley: Turkey.
Roger: Great, Is there anything I can do to help?
Shirley: Yeah. Go in the kitchen, set the oven for 350, and get in.

Man that Shirley could dish it out!

Reruns don't die. They just go into eternal syndication. Bet he's dancing through the pearly gates now.....

I read an article in the local paper a few years back about Fred Berry either running or working at a home for troubled youth in north Alabama for a while. He had accepted Christ, and became something of a role model for troubled youth. We can remember him for for the joy he brought into the lives of many people.
