RIP Gene Wilder

I must've watched Willy Wonka and Blazing Saddles at least a few hundred times as a kid.

The man is a comic legend.

RIP

Gene Wilder, star of Willy Wonka film, dies at 83 - The Globe and Mail

I saw Stir Crazy at the drive in with my parents back in the day. I wasn't a huge fan of his but he was a legend for sure. R.I.P.

I didn't know he was married to Gilda Radner. Another legend gone too soon.

What a sad day... He literally was every kid's imagination of Willy Wonka embodied... and responsible for one of the best memes to ever hit a message forum:

Sad news for sure. But he lived a hell of a good life.
After losing folks in their 50's, 60's and 70's this year, it's nice to hear that some folks can last into their 8th decade of life.

RIP.

RIP.

Its not his movies that I first thought about when I clicked on this thread but rather this Richard Pryor clip about Gene Wilder and prison.
