Gene Wilder Passes Away at 83
This is obviously very sad news as another great leaves us in a year that has taken many. Gene Wilder was best known for his iconic roles in Willie Wonka, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, The Producers and many, many more. To me, he will always be remembered as a warm, comedic presence that brought life and exuberance to all of his roles.
Details about his passing are at this point unknown. I do know that he lived a successful and fruitful long life that will be remembered fondly. That being said; It's safe to say that I will be catching up on some of his classics again. For me, I'm going to get my hands on Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles as soon as I possibly can.
