act.

He actually died yesterday.

Loved watching him. One of the absolute best recurring guests on
Letterman thru the years and the only reason to put it on ABC in the
mornings.

His episode on How I Met Your Mother is still a favorite.

RIP

Loved Regis, like so many others. He felt like the last connection to a special part of old Hollywood.

At age 88, hard to say "too soon," but he was a lively, engaging and personable host and TV presence. He'll be missed.

What is up with Kelly Ripa? She works with Regis for
over a decade and all she does is post something written
by the show's PR department. He basically helped make
her a household name.

We'll see what she says tomorrow. It's possible they weren't on good terms.

Seemed like a super nice guy who never had an unkind word to say about anyone.

A gentleman and class act!
