LOS ANGELES (AP) Actor, comedian and chef Dom DeLuise has died. He appeared in scores of movies and TV shows and in Broadway plays, and voiced characters for cartoon shows. He also authored two cookbooks. His son says he died in his sleep after a long illness. Dom DeLuise was 75.
While his IMDB profile credits 117 acting credits, I am having a tough time of recalling exactly what he did, save being one of Mel Brooks’ go-to guys and, what, wasn’t he the center square in Hollywood Squares for a hot minute? OH FUCK< Smoky and the Bandit II, Cannonball Run AND Cannonball Run II.
I am envisioning a Dom Deluise party after work. Time to dust off the fondue kit.
