Richard Pryor passed away today from a heart attack Saturday at the age of 65. He influenced many of today's most popular comedians and was so popular in the 70s and 80s that he became one of the highest paid actors of his time. Unfortunately he had a terrible battle with drugs and alcohol and in recent years has been suffering from multiple sclerosis.
The Toy was one of my favorite movies growing up. I could watch it over and over again. Comedy has lost one of it's great talents this weekend but it's nice to see people in LA stop by his star and show some love.
Here he is with Sidney Poitier, Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy back in the day.
