Earlier today, Orange County Sheriff's deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. "The man was identified as Robert Saget and pronounced deceased on scene," the Sheriff's Office said.

Detectives said they found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case, and the cause of death is pending.

Saget was a comedian and actor known for his roles as Danny Tanner in "Full House" and as the host of "America's Funniest Home Videos." His raunchy comedy clashed with his straight-laced public image cultivated by those roles.

According to his Twitter feed, Saget was in Florida performing on his "I Don't Do Negative Comedy Tour."
