RIP, Mr. Erdman

ERDMAN DIED ON SATURDAY
AT THE AGE OF 93

I couldn’t believe that this man, Richard Erdman, who I knew from the 1953 movie Stalag 17 starring William Holden and Peter Graves, had been cast as an elderly forever student named Leonard at Greendale Community College. I had not seen him on the screen, large or small, since that film. I was a huge fan of the quirky show Community during its run on NBC. It was one of the most original shows on TV, and often it was the funniest. Per the usual for a pro, he was terrific and terrifically funny.
