    Thanks all, for the votes in the Gene Wilder contest.

    I think we'll go with Gene's four time costar (would've been five if he'd gotten the part in Blazing Saddles in addition to co-writer): Richard Pryor. Any live action TV or movie role but not one of his stand-up comedy skits or shows.

    Normal restrictions apply. 200x200 pixels, 1MB Max. Lets do up to 2x, since Richard had a lot of great roles. Voting thread will go up on 8/11?

    I'll start with a little known movie, but a favorite of mine-

    Some Kind Of Hero (1982) - as Corporal Eddie Teller (with Margot Kidder)

    And another lesser known, but fun movie-

    Harlem Nights (1989) - as Sugar Ray (with Eddie Murphy, Redd Foxx, Della Reese among other greats)

    Would the concert film, "Live on the Sunset Strip" count?

    Here's "JoJo Dancer, Your Life is Calling."

    I think that's a stand-up act for him, similar to Delirious and Raw for Eddie Murphy. So not really a role.

    I mean, unless it is a role and not a live Richard Pryor gig.

    I think I'll let the entry thread go until tomorrow. Still lots of choices available.
