More Sad News: Gene Wilder Dead at 83

Post by Mike DiCenso » Tue Aug 30, 2016 12:14 am

We've lost another of the great ones; Gene Wilder, star of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", "Young Frankenstein", and so many more movies has died due to complications from Alzheimer's:

I wondered why Wilder was so quiet all these years. What a terrible way to go and he was such a wonderful person. :-(

jesus christ, what the hell is going on this year? seriously, there are going to be no talented artists left. we're headed toward a world in which Star Wars IX stars rob schneider and janeane garofalo and is directed by uwe boll.
soundtrack by miley cyrus.
