Between he and Paul Lynde, I'd be in stitches watching game shows they appeared in.

Lynde on Hollywood Squares and Reilly on Match Game, they were two of the best. They were so... "flamboyant".

Were they gay?

The last time I saw CNR was on "The New WKRP", like 10 or 15 years ago.

Ha! I guessed it right!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Nelson_Reilly

"Reilly did not publicly come out as a gay man until his one man show Save It for the Stage. However, much like fellow game show regular Paul Lynde, Reilly played up a campy onscreen persona. In many episodes of Match Game, he would lampoon himself by briefly affecting a deep voice and self-consciously describing how "butch" he was. He mentioned in a 2002 interview with Entertainment Tonight that he felt no need to come out of the closet and that he never purposefully hid his homosexuality from anyone."

I need to play the lottery! 2 out of 2!

That's some memory you have!
I, too, am sad to hear he passed away as he was iconic on the original Match Game. I also enjoyed his turn in Cannonball Run II, as Don Don Canneloni, classic role, though the movie was less than spectacular.

Wonder how the Jim Rome show will take this tomorrow as his name pops up as a clone-ism from time to time.

RIP CNR

I also remember him from "Lidsville" by Sid & Marty Kroft (1971). It also starred Butch Patrick (aka, Eddie Munster).

Bart Braverman, perhaps best known for his role on "Vega$" outside of Match Game (if that's saying anything).

Classic game show, probably the best way to pass the late morning hours as a kid growing up in the late 70s, watching Match Game and the Price is Right. CBS (and Mark Goodman/Bill Todman) knew how to produce great daytime game shows back then.

Separately...last night, I went to the Morrissey concert here in Houston. He came out on stage, took the microphone, looked towards the ceiling and said, Charles...Nelson...Reilly. I was stoked! What a way to honor someone who, I'm guessing, half the crowd had no idea about.
