I thought Gene Wilder was dead for the longest time. Then realized I'm retarded and it's Billy Wilder thats dead.
I dont care.

Yeah, I get people names Billy and Gene mixed up all the time too.
(see what I did there? It's really Wilder, but I took the Bill and Gene route.).

Only a small role in a film but played it well.
One of my favourite movies of all time.
