    Fred Willard. RIP

    Some reports I've seen has shown 85, some 86. He had a good run. Seems he has been around forever and made most anything he was in, better.

    Loved Fred Willard. He was very funny. I know that his wife passed recently.
    The reason a dog has so many friends is because he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

    One of those great comic actors who never won an Emmy and should have. He was excellent in Christopher Guest's films. RIP.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    According to a tweet from his daughter. Hope Mulbarger, she said Willard died at "the fantastic age of 86". So I'll go with her. Mr. Willard was great in most everything and was hilarious on "Everybody Loves Raymond", for which he was Emmy nominated three times and never won.

    May he RIP.

    Willard was amazing. I'd watch movies and shows just because I knew he was i them. Has anyone seen Family Tree on HBO? It ran for one season (unfortunately, because it was brilliant and should have continued), and was a Christopher Guest show. Fred had a bit part in it and he was fantastic.
