Man, I was just remarking on how much I enjoyed his Jose Chung character on X-Files and Millenium. Now he dwells with Lord Kimbote up in the heavens. Or, as with Onan Goopta, he has "molted his earthly encumbrance to pursue his Selfosophical research in another dimension."
"TV and Broadway musical star Charles Nelson Reilly - a Tony Award winner for his performance as Bud Frump in the original production of How to ucceed in Business Without Really Trying - died May 25 in Beverly Hills, CA. He was 76.
"Mr. Reilly died from complications of pneumonia, according to The New ork Times. Patrick Hughes, Reilly's partner and only immediate survivor, told the New York paper that the actor had been ill for over a year.
"While his campy work on "Match Game" is still fondly remembered, Reilly was also a multiple Emmy nominee for his often comic work. His turn as Jose Chung on "The X-Files" garnered much attention and guest-spots on "Millennium" and "The Drew Carey Show" resulted in Emmy nominations."
"Well, all's well that ends well. Though that's easy for Shakespeare to
say... he'll be around for another millennium. But what of our own
millennium? Will it all end well? No one can know, but that of course
doesn't stop anyone from guessing. And the nature of those predictions
always revolve around the usual suspects: salvation and/or
self-satisfaction. With that in mind, I humbly add my own prophecy of
what the dawn of the new millennium shall bring forth: one thousand more
years of the same, old crap."

"And though we may not be alone in the universe, in our own separate
ways, on this planet we are all alone."
