Prolific "actor?" That's hardly what he was best known for.

I liked him on the Bernie Mac show.

He was a television pioneer, but he really lowered himself in his final years by playing lecherous old men. There was an episode of Two and a Half Men that was really cringe worthy. Why he felt he had to sully his reputation by doing shit roles like this is beyond me.

R3 Blame boredom. He was probably eager to work, but how many roles was a 90-year-old going to get?

We know.

Playing a lech is automatically a "shit" role?

by Anonymousreply 606/30/2020

I loved him and his humor. But in his last years, he went after Trump on Twitter. He was very intelligent and knew how to make a point. It seems he had a great life. RIP

"Playing a lech is automatically a "shit" role?"

On a raunchy sit-com starring non-other than supreme dirtbag Charlie Sheen? I think that's pretty much the textbook definition of a "shit" role.

Who will deliver the eulogy . . . Rob Reiner? Mel Brooks? Dick Van Dyke?

I feel the same way with them giving Betty dirty old lady roles.

Betty was always bawdy.

Carl Reiner also directed and appeared in "The Jerk."

Has Dick Van Dyke commented?

Rose Marie?

Chloris Leachman?

Sally Struthers?

by Anonymousreply 1506/30/2020

Susan Dey?

R15 I think Rose Marie is still dead.

by Anonymousreply 1706/30/2020

I always liked him a lot. His 2000 Year Old Man routines with Mel Brooks were really funny, and I loved the "Dick Van Dyke Show."

Rose Marie is a trouper. She'll come through.
