Left In Limbo: Celebs Who Died While Working On Projects

Redd Foxx

He was born as John Sanford but the world will forever remember him as Redd Foxx. The foul-mouthed comedian made a name for himself through countless comedy records and he landed his own show as a junk man and single father in “Sanford and Son.” After numerous failed marriages and major issues with Uncle Sam, Foxx returned to television decades later. But his return to television was short lived. Foxx had always joked about suffering from the big one but it was no laughing matter when he had a fatal heart attack on the set of “The Royal Family.” The show was cancelled halfway through the first season.
