R.I.P. Charles Nelson Reilly



I've always been a big fan of Charles Nelson Reilly, particularly of the wise-cracking ad libs of his Match Game days. No one will ever wear giant, thick-framed glasses with such style. True "comedic chic."

You'll always be my center square, Charlie!

Brian and I named a Ms. Pac-Man "move" after him. He will indeed be missed by all the world.

CNR was a true character, and a man of character as well. For him to be such a flamer in the bad ol' days of TV? Courage.

Indeed.

I think America was oblivious, for the most part. According to Wikipedia, Paul Lyde "was affectionately nicknamed "America's Most Eligible Bachelor" by the public."
