Dom DeLuise Now Being Confused For James Coco In Heaven

TMZ is exclusively reporting that actor Dom DeLuise has passed away. The site lists his popular credits as Spaceballs and The Cannonball Run, which is just a terrible way for anyone to be remembered. I prefer to recall his hysterical work in Mel Brooks' The Twelve Chairs, his memorable stint as a Ziploc bag pitchman, and his brief role in Blazing Saddles, above.

You've left Haunted Honeymoon off your list. It's sometimes like you hate everything that is good and light in this world, Alexander.

And "Hot Stuff", co-starring Suzanne Pleshette and Jerry Reed — a damn fine terrible movie.

What about The Silence of the Hams?

What about Fatso? I will always remember him as the shattered "Dominick DiNapoli" listening as a family doctor rattles off all the fatty Italian foods he can no longer eat while a single tear runs down his chubby cheek … genius.

Wait, what are you trying to say about The Cannonball Run?

I feel like the whole idea of Captain Chaos character made light of schizophrenia.

Somwhere Burt Reynolds is weeping.

I'm roasting Dean Martin, in tribute.

Fatso! That also was written and directed by, and starred, the late Ann Bancroft. And gave me the concept of "running my plate."

FATSO, man. MAN.

Sonny: Did you ever suck the jelly out of a jelly doughnut and then fill it with chocolate swirl ice cream?
