... Charles Nelson Reilly, Actor.

Charles Nelson Reilly will be remembered by most of the new generation from his appearances in a lot of those rerun game shows on the Game Show Network, most specifically The Match Game.

Reilly's career extended as far as a Tony Award for playing Bud Frump in the 1962 production of "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying".

He was also seen in movies such as Cannon Ball Run II, and many voice over roles in cartoon movies.

Reilly died Friday in Los Angeles of complications from pneumonia, his partner, Patrick Hughes, told the New York Times. He was 76.

Here is a clip of him from Match Game.
