    Gene Wilder has died

    Not a hoax this time. Gene was 83.

    Best known for his portrayal of Willy Wonka, and his comedy work with Richard Pryor, and his association with Mel Brooks.

    He was married to SNL cast member Gilda Radner, until her death due to ovarian cancer.

    One of the greatest comedians of our time. Young Frankenstein was great.

    I liked him in The Producers with Zero Mostel.
