RIP, Charles Grodin

The great comedic actor Charles Grodin has died of bone marrow cancer at age 86.

I don’t think any actor has done sardonic characters better. My favorite of his many, many comic roles will always be  scheming private, personal secretary Tony Abbot from Heaven Can Wait, which is probably my favorite non-Mel Brooks comedy (though co-written by Buck Henry, a frequent Mel Brooks collaborator).

    I just read of Grodin’s passing and learned how he used to mix it up with Johnny Carson. His humor was as dry as the Sahara.

    Here’s one of their encounters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AT6HIfhwtKo

    I think I’m going to have to eat chorizo and eggs in his honor.
