Dom DeLuise: 1933 - 2009

Dom DeLuise, star of some of my favorite comedies and one very notable dramatic favorite, has passed away. Read the CNN article here.

In addition to his better known films such as "Blazing Saddles", "Silent Movie" and the "Smokey & The Bandit" films, he also had a part in the 1964 film "Failsafe", with Henry Fonda. He was a very funny man who had an amazing sense of timing, and a very infectious laugh.

Rest in peace, bro, we'll miss you.

Here's a short video of Dom doing a skit with Dean Martin.
