Buck Henry was awesome, but can you imagine his SNL "Uncle Roy" character on TV today?? I don't think they can even aire the reruns of those old 2 skits, now! ...FUN FACT: In reality those skits were written by WOMEN -SNL writers Anne Beatts & Rosie Shuster!Thursday, January 09, 11:46:41am
    Once asked how he wanted to die, Buck said "I want to be unbelievably old. I want to be withered beyond belief. I want people to be saying, 'I thought he died years ago.' and to be amazed I'd lasted to that age." (NT).Thursday, January 09, 12:08:00pm
