Update: While the circumstances surrounding Bob Saget's death at age 65 are still unclear, tributes to the comedian were pouring in Sunday night. Outlets including People, the Hollywood Reporter, and E! were rounding up devastated reactions from co-stars, fellow comics, and more. "I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby," tweeted Full House co-star John Stamos. One of many who recalled Saget's kindness, Jon Stewart wrote simply, "Bob Saget… Just the funniest and nicest…" In a statement, his family says Saget "was everything to us." He leaves behind three adult daughters with an ex-wife, as well as his current wife Kelly Rizzo. Our original story from Sunday follows, with the addition of Saget's last tweet:

TMZ broke the news that Bob Saget of Full House fame was found dead in a Florida hotel room Sunday afternoon, following a Saturday night performance in Jacksonville. It reports authorities were called to the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando around 4pm after hotel security found Saget unresponsive in the room. The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed the news on Twitter, reporting he was pronounced dead at the scene. It adds that "detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case." The actor and comedian had been in the midst of tour that had been slated to last until May. His final tweet, posted in the early hours of Sunday, said, "Loved tonight’s show ... I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this s---." (More Bob Saget stories.)
