a Master of Improv,
Comic actor Fred Willard of 'Best in Show' and 'Modern Family' dies at 86

Fred Willard, the comic actor considered by many a master of the mockumentary genre, died Friday at age 86.

Willard was best known for his roles in Christopher Guest films such as "Best in Show" and "A Mighty Wind," and over the course of his long career he made an art of dry humor that brought laughs in goofy, subtle and understated ways.

Yeah that was super sad when I read that.

Just wanted to point out we now have the option to use a sad face instead of a like for those who always feel a little morbid for having to “like” sad things. (Incidentally, I cannot find either of those symbols in the smiley dropdown, but I’m sure they’re there).

Sorry for the off topic and my condolences to the family & friends & fans of Ken Osmond.

I liked him anchoring 20/20 with Barbara Walters, & Concentration was my favorite game show along with the $25,000 Pyramid.
