    Oh, too bad. I didn't realize he was that old. Very funny actor.

    Lost a great comedic actor, didn't we? Sorry to hear that. I, too, wasn't aware he was as old as mid-80's.

    "Surely, he can't be dead".

    "Yes, he is and quit calling him Shirley"

    RIP, funny man [​IMG]

    Bump.... for respect. And one of my favorite actors of all time.

    I still can't believe he is gone.

    I just watched Superhero Movie the other night. Might have been his last film... I dunno. But I loved it - just cause he was in it. He was so hilarious in anything he appeared in. Ahead of his time... Hats off.
