Actor Gene Wilder Is Dead at 83

Sad to read that Gene Wilder, star of "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," "Silver Streak" and several Mel Brooks comedies, is dead at 83 from Alzheimer's disease. May he and his fellow comedy genius wife, Gilda Radner, forever rest in peace together.

"Silver Streak": The first of three films opposite Richard Pryor.

He was kinda great in "Will & Grace" too, which was apparently his last screen credit.
