Fred Willard (1933–2020)

The actor Fred Willard has died at the age of eighty-six. The New York Times has an obituary.

So much to admire, from Fernwood 2 Night to Christopher Guest films to Modern Family. This clip, from Guest’s A Mighty Wind (2003), with Willard as Mike LaFontaine, is one of our fambly’s favorite things.

[The pop-up ad and closing promotion are annoying, I know. That’s the price of the clip.]
