RIP Charles Nelson Reilly

Charles Nelson Reilly, Tony award winner and panelist for Match Game, passed away from pneumonia on Friday, May 25th. The actor and comedian was 76 years old. The always charming and hysterical actor who found his way onto Broadway in the early 60s and became a household name with his appearances on the Johnny Carson show and Match Game.

Reilly was amazing and was never afraid of mocking a necessary foe - such as Scientology or other panelists on Match Game! He will be sorely missed by this girl and many many others. Check these articles for more information on this TV pioneer:
