Bob Saget wore many hats as a comedian, host, and actor. Most people will recognize him from the series "Full House," where he took on the role of Danny Tanner, the widowed father of three daughters. He was also the narrator for the hit series, "How I Met Your Mother," and used to host "America's Funniest Home Videos."

Saget had 62 acting credits, seven writing credits, 12 directing credits, and more. Before going into professional acting, he studied at the Center for the Performing and Cinematic Arts, a road he nearly didn't go down because he originally wanted to study medicine. Tragically, this multi-talented man passed away at the beginning of this year at 65 years old.
