Lyle Waggoner, known for his work on "The Carol Burnett Show" and "Wonder Woman," has died at the age of 84.

The actor passed away Tuesday after...ith cancer, according to his rep.

In a statement obtained by Fox News, Waggoner's rep said that the “loving husband, father, grandfather, entrepreneur, and actor passed away peacefully at home on March 17th at the age of 84 with his wife at his side. The cause of death was cancer.”

Waggoner served as the announcer for and played various characters in "The Carol Burnett Show" from 1967 to 1974.

Burnett, now 86, said that she was looking for someone with good looks in addition to comedic chops to fill the role so that she could play her ugly duckling skits with him.

Waggoner also served as the first centerfold for Playgirl magazine, which called him "the stuff of which sexual fantasies are made, a 6-foot-4 hunk of gorgeous beefcake."

He then joined the cast of "Wonder Woman," alongside Lynda Carter, as Steve Trevor, a soldier who crash-landed on Wonder Woman's mysterious island of Amazon women.
