Enjoyed the shows. A bit Hokey but fun

Well, now Donald Trump has a larger pool to choose from for his cabinet.


Classic, mneely, I laughed out loud at this.

Sorry to hear of his death, but a great comedic actor? Not in my estimation.


Not many people could have pulled off his epic role as Hymie The Robot on Get Smart!

No matter what type of actor you call him, "great" is far from my opinion. Poor to mediocre would be my estimation. You're much more easily pleased than I am. Calling him a great comedic actor is a disservice to those that are.

Did he ever appear on Star Trek?


In addition to Get Smart he had his only staring TV role in the short lived Mel Brooks series When Things were Rotten (a spoof on Robin Hood I actually remember. Also assorted bit parts on Bewitched, Alice, Fantasy Island, Knight Rider, Quincy, Trapper John MD, Happy Days, Charlie's Angels, Love Boat, Night Stalker, Marcus welby, Rockford Files, Mary Tyler Moore, Banacek (loved that show), Love American Style, Flying Nun and Gidget among others but no Star Trek. He was also a very talented and in demand voice over actor for many cartoons, an author, game show regular and stand up comedian. Last but not least his other signature role was in the Tony nominated Bye, Bye Birdie (a favorite of my mother's) as the star Conrad Birdie.

It was a joke - I thought it might explain Board-O's reaction Big Grin knowing how much he loves all things Star Trek

Robocop - naturally - son of Jose Ferrer - also a great actor who was on virtually every show in the 70s and 80s

Yep. The ultimate yuppie in Robocop. Aside from Christian Bale in American Psycho, of course.

I loved his performance in Hot Shots: Part Deux. Smile

Good guy too. I bumped into him at a local bar in La Jolla when he was around for filming of the movie "Traffic". What surprised me is I imagined him as a small weaselly guy based upon his roles I had seen. In person he was solidly built and a good 6 foot

No matter what type of actor you call him, "great" is far from my opinion. Poor to mediocre would be my estimation. You're much more easily pleased than I am. Calling him a great comedic actor is a disservice to those that are.


Your boorish behaviour never ceases to amaze me. A man has passed away. Offer condolences to his family... share an anecdote about the person...say nothing if you nothing nice to say.

I guess you missed my initial response: "Sorry to hear of his death, but a great comedic actor? Not in my estimation." I see no reason to praise him just because he died. Please write your advice to me down on a large piece of rough cardboard and store it for me.

Great comedienne. Female tense?

Loved her shows. A great talent


Another huge loss. The MTM Show was another childhood favorite with a great ensemble cast of characters backed by top notch writing. They dont make them like that anymoreFrown
