    I'm sorry for his passing, at 83 he was still going strong, but I'll not weep because of his death, I'll smile and laugh out loud because of his life.

    I think I'll go rent some of his movies, and enjoy the great work he did

    RIP

    I have only seen a couple of his movies but I really admired him for his charity work. Great guy.
