An Interview with Gene Wilder: June 13, 2013

What a special man and a unique talent. Just don’t cast him in a Judd Apatow or a Kevin Smith film. (Did you know Richard Pryor, a writer on Blazing Saddles, was supposed to play the sheriff? But his, for lack of a better word, inconstancy caused the producers to cast Cleavon Little.)

And Wilder loves As Time Goes By! My wife’s and my favorite!
