Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad SadJimmy FallonBestiezLate Night TVNostalgia

This loss has been difficult for celebs to process.

And, it seems Mel Brooks is having a particularly tough time coping with the death of Gene Wilder, who passed away on Monday due to complications with Alzheimer's disease.

While the 90-year-old had already expressed his grief on Twitter, he didn't feel 140 characters was enough to properly mourn his good friend.

The comedian stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday, and opened up to Jimmy Fallon about how much he misses his comedic partner in crime, saying:

"He was sick, and I knew it. And he was such a dear friend. I expected it. I expected he would go but, I don't know, when it happens, it's still tremendous. It's still a big shock, you know. I'm still reeling from that no more Gene. I can't call him. And he was such a wonderful part of my life."

Even though recalling his fondest memories of the Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory star was clearly emotional for the New York native, he went on to describe some of his best moments with the acclaimed actor.

He hilariously recounted the first time he met the thespian, pitching The Producers to him, crafting the concept for Young Frankenstein together, and many other enjoyable encounters.

And, Mel even got the audience laughing in the wake of Gene's sad passing. Take a look at the clip (above) for the filmmaker's touching tribute.

Blazing Saddles - The Musical!


Leave well enough alone, Mel Brooks!

You are never going to have the kind of success you had with The Producers! Stop ruining your movies!

Guess he can't hear us…

Mel Brooks is taking his classic flick Blazing Saddles and is putting it to music for a new stage production. At present, it is said that the funnyman has penned two musical numbers for the show and is in the middle of a third.

In a recent interview, Mel confessed that he wouldn't be rushing the production to New York once it is completed for fear of what the NYT will say. He explained:

"If I did it, I wouldn't rush to New York with it because the Times (newspaper) would say, 'Oh dear, oh dear, another movie converted and transmogrified into a musical… The Times was only lukewarm to Young Frankenstein."

Their reaction was a reflection of the show itself. No doubt, they will have the same reaction to this newest venture.

Besides, there will never be another Madeline Kahn.

What do U think?
