    The Golden Globe-nominated comic actor died Monday at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 75 years old.

    Dom is probably best-known for his work in Mel Brooks films like "Blazing Saddles," "Silent Movie," "History Of The World Part One," "Spaceballs," "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," and co-starring with Burt Reynolds in films like "Cannonball Run," "Smokey and The Bandit 2" and "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas."

    He also hosted the popular TV show "Candid Camera" from 1991-1992. Dom was an avid cook and author, penning several cooking guides and children's books

    He will always be immortalized on the silverscreen. He was great in the 'Cannonball Run' movies. His son is an actor on one of my son's favorite shows 'Wizards of Waverly Place'.:eek:

    A sad loss. Comedy is my favourite, bar none, and he was among the best. He reminded me a bit of one of my all time favourite comedy actors, Zero Mostel.

    He will be missed by those who actually remember good tv and not total violence. Does anyone remember the show he did in the 70's called, LOTS OF LUCK?
