Reiner was born Carlton Reiner in the Bronx, New York on March 20, 1922, the son of Irving, who was a watchmaker, and Bessie (née Mathias) Reiner. His parents were Jewish immigrants, his father from Romania and his mother from Austria.
He was married to Estelle Reiner (née Lebost, 1914-2008). They had three children together: actor-director Rob Reiner (born 1947), writer Annie Reiner (born 1957) and actor-director Lucas Reiner (born 1960).
Reiner studied acting as a teenager and later performed with a touring theatre company. After serving in an entertainment unit during World War II, he made his Broadway debut in the musical Inside U.S.A. (1948–49).
In the early 1960s Reiner created The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–66), in which he originally intended to portray protagonist Rob Petrie, a young comedy writer. However, Columbia Broadcasting System (now CBS) persuaded him to settle for being a producer, writer, and supporting actor.
In 1967 Reiner made his directorial debut with the feature film Enter Laughing, an adaptation of his semiautobiographical novel (1958), which had earlier been made into a Broadway play (1963–64).
In addition to directing, Reiner continued to act, appearing in a number of television shows and movies, notably the popular Ocean’s trilogy—Ocean’s Eleven (2001), Ocean’s Twelve (2004), and Ocean’s Thirteen (2007).
In 2019 he voiced the character of Carl Reineroceros in the animated feature Toy Story 4. Reiner was awarded the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for Comedy in 2000.
His son Rob Reiner acted in various television series, including All in the Family (1971–79), and became a director of note.
He lived to be 98-years-old, but sadly, Carl Reiner has passed away at his home in Beverly Hills. It is reported that he died surrounded by his family. While not many details have been made public, the news comes as something of a surprise as Reiner was very active during his later years.
