Aaaaawwww...I always liked him. I can see him now in his helmet and long coat, riding his little bicycle till he tipped over after Ruth Buzzi hit him with her purse. Thunk! Godspeed, Henry.

I just realized...that's #2. After Patrick Swayze. Who will be #3?

Aww, that's sad. Given that my own father is 76 and I'm nowhere near ready to lose him, 73 still seems young to me.

He was also a regular as a judge on Boston Legal, and played a priest in Wedding Crashers.

RIP, Henry.

Bad things come in three's; Patrick Suaze, Henry Gibson, and Mary Travers of Peter, Paul, and Mary fame. Three great celebrities. RIP, all!

I am shocked and saddened.
One of my favorite memories of him is as Haven Hamilton in the movie Nashville.
Gibson was absolutely perfect in that role.
