Frederick Charles Willard (September 18, 1939 – May 15, 2020)was an American actor, comedian, and writer. He was best known for his roles in the Rob Reiner mockumentary film ''This Is Spinal Tap''; the Christopher Guest mockumentary films ''Waiting for Guffman'', ''Best in Show'', ''A Mighty Wind'', ''For Your Consideration, Mascots''; and the Anchorman films.

My all-time favorite was ''Wall-E''.

He was an interesting man and a great comedian! Where-ever he is now I'll bet he's playing to a huge audience :-)

And not to forget, "Fernwood 2Night," the best fake talk show ever.

RIP Fred Willard!

I remember Fred Willard from Fernwood 2Night. I really enjoyed his portrayal of Hank MacDougall, the father of Robert's wife Amy, in Everybody Loves Raymond. I also loved his portrayal of Frank Dunphy, the father of Phil, in Modern Family. He was a talented actor and a master of improvisation.
