another one bites the dust

Louis Nye is dead, at the ripe old age of 92. DAMN! I saw him play all kinds of roles in the movies and on television.

I had forgotton all about him until I read about his passing on this blog.


I don't know if you remember but on the Steve Allen TV show back in the early 60's Louis Nye, Tom Poston, and Don Knotts would play characters in man on the street interviews by Steve. Don Knotts is still around but I am not sure about Tom Poston. I can't remember Louise Nye or Tom Poston in any other roles. Of course we know Don Knotts went on to fame and fortune as the beloved Barney Fife.

On the Steve Allen show Louis Nye was Gordon Hathaway from the Bronx and he would start off his bit with "Hi ho Steverino." Just shows how fucking old I am.
