Actor Tony Randall Dies at 84

Actor Tony Randall, the stage, screen and television actor best known as fussy Felix Unger on the 70s sitcom The Odd Couple, died in New York in his sleep Monday night after complications from a long illness; he was 84

He will be certainly missed.

I never got to see him on stage, but he was great on TV & the silver screen. Sorry to see him go.

When my wife & I watched Down with Love, I commented "Wow, Tony Randall is still around & acting". I hadn't heard from him in so long that I thought he had already passed. I always enjoyed the way he made fun of his own prudish image on Letterman.

"Oscar, I have just one favor to ask of you before you go. If you return after going out and you should happen to find me .... (flails out arms towards teh floor depicting a manner of him being dead).....would you at least see that I'm given a decent burial?"

Oscar
"Felix, what is the matter with you? what kind of a thing to say is that?"

Felix
"Well have you have this habit of letting everything lay right where it falls."
===========================================
a terrible shame that will forever be missed.

Two children, 7 and 5.

I loved him in "Seven Faces of Dr. Lao" as a kid.

Funny, I always would have thought that it would have been Jack to go first. He had been in a bad way over the last couple of years, with throat cancer I believe.

not really the time or the place, but does anyone else think its pretty selfish to bring children into the world when you are so old? you know your going to die soon, why put your kids through that shit?

The man was always game to do funny stuff with David Letterman. He seemed to be a real class act.

The world has lost another Great one. Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, and now Tony Randall.

RIP Tony. You will be missed.

Hey! It's Tony Randell! I'm a big fan.

I always think of that line from a Mr. Short-term Memory skit Tom Hanks did on SNL. Sad news.

Wow, Tony Randell! Will you give me and autograph. Please, please, please, please...
