Fred Willard was a brilliant comic actor and improvisor. He could make anything funny. His work goes down as some of the funniest ever,— Ben Stiller (@RedHourBen) May 16, 2020
From Jerry Hubbard on...he inspired and influenced so many people in comedy.
Sending love to his family.
How lucky that we all got to enjoy Fred Willard’s gifts. He is with his missed Mary now. Thanks for the deep belly laughs Mr. Willard. Best in Show (7/11) Movie CLIP - Judging the Hounds (2000) HD https://t.co/wPrbk9VjWI via @YouTube— Jamie Lee Curtis (@jamieleecurtis) May 16, 2020
So so sad. Fred guested on Modern Family as Ty Burrell‘s father throughout our entire 11 year run & was a joy each and every time. A prince and a gentleman. He was beloved by all. #RIP 😢 https://t.co/ZlrKeRkZ71— Jeff Greenberg (@JeffGreenbergCD) May 16, 2020
