On top of being an inspiration to many of today's top comedic minds, Gene Wilder was a genuinely wonderful person to those who had the pleasure of knowing him — even when he declined to appear on your late night show!

That's what James Corden made sure his audience knew when paying tribute to the beloved Hollywood icon, who passed away on Monday due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease.

On Monday's Late Late Show, the late night host gushed over the comedic talents of the Blazing Saddles star, remembering meeting the actor when he came to one of Corden's plays in New York.

And when Corden got his gig as the new host of the Late Late Show, he asked Wilder to be apart of a Willy Wonka sketch, and received the most polite, poetic "no" in the history of show business!

Johnny Depp Could Win A SAG Award For His Unrecognizable Role In Black Mass — See Who Else Changed Up Their Looks For Movie Roles!

no title

Johnny Depp is a master of disguise on the big screen!

From Captain Jack Sparrow to Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, and The Mad Hatter — the actor has completely immersed himself in some iconic roles over the years!

For this year's SAG Awards, Depp is nominated for his portrayal of Whitey Bulgar in Black Mass — the Godfather of the Irish mob who made a deal with the FBI to take down Boston's Italian Mafia!

The 52-year-old completely transformed himself for the role, donning make-up effects and facial prosthetics that helped him become the terrifying character!

But Depp isn't the only actor to completely change his look for a movie role! Christian Bale, Charlize Theron, and Robert Downey Jr. have have all played characters where they've looked virtually unrecognizable!

You grew up watching them. They come on TV all the time. You can quote them by heart.

Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny DeppTim Burton

gene wilder johnny depp willy wonka insult

Gene Wilder apparently has some pretty strong feelings about Tim Burton's remake of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp as ol' Willy boy.

The actor, best known for his role as THE candyman in the 1971 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory film, came clean in an interview Thursday night, speaking up about Tim's take on the Roald Dahl classic.

He said:

Russell Brand Embraces Willy Wonka And The Beatles For Olympics Closing Ceremony

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteRussell Brand

Russell Brand is the Walrus!

The British comedian represented his country during the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony on Sunday night by channeling Willy Wonka and The Beatles.

He took us into a realm of Pure Imagination by singing (above) a few lines from the 1971 musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantasy novel before segueing into a so-so cover of I Am The Walrus.

Not bad, but we would have loved to see his alter ego, Aldous Snow, cover the song with a bit more of a rock star edge.

Or maybe he could have just performed Bangers, Beans & Mash. Ha!

Oompa Loompa Employee Gunned Down After Stabbing Co-Worker At The Chocolate Factory

WIlly Wonka Chocolate Factory Stabbing, Shooting

Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo /
We've got a wacky story for you.

Working at a chocolate factory sounds amazeballs, right?

Well even the world's second greatest occupation — number one is quality control at a brothel — occasionally leads to workplace stabbings!!

A Cambodian worker at TCHO Chocolate Factory stabbed his colleague with box cutters.

We hated Tim Burton/John August's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake TOO, but that's no reason to resort to violence!!

One SFO police officer described Tuesday's unprovoked attack best. He said:

"He started cutting the victim for no apparent reason."

After which, the suspect fled the crime scene with weapon in hand. Eventually the police put a bullet in his chest.

Come on, guy!

Even if you work next to Veruca Salt on an assembly line, stabbing a coworkers is NEVER cool!!
