While this is something not gambling-related, this is of note to many who knew and loved his work.
There's a wonderful video where he narrates his life and career.

I hope he doesn't go "Stir Crazy".

Great memories of my youth watching WW time and time again. And now he is back in the casinos.

I am saddened. To cheer myself up, we're watching Young Frankenstein tonight.

Igor: Dr. Frankenstein...
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: "Fronkensteen."
Igor: You're putting me on.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No, it's pronounced "Fronkensteen."
Igor: Do you also say "Froderick"?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No... "Frederick."
Igor: Well, why isn't it "Froderick Fronkensteen"?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: It isn't; it's "Frederick Fronkensteen."
Igor: I see.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: You must be Igor.
Igor: No, it's pronounced "eye-gor."

Enjoyed him immensely as Leo Bloom in the producers, but in all honesty laughed as hard at Zero Mostel. Zero was Blacklisted in the 50's for refusing to name names. He died as a result of a starvation diet complications. In 4 months he went from 304 to 215 lbs. Anyway, I think when we laugh it is because something is true. There is a scene in the Producers where he has just chased a 80 year old women around, saying he loved her, just so she would advance money for his next play.
She leaves the room and Zero looks out the window and below him in the street a limo pulls up. Out steps a sugar dadyy with a stunning piece of eye candy on his arm. Zero opens the window and I expected him to jump out. I mean how low can a man go. haha
I cracked up at what happened next : Max Bialystock: That's it, baby, when you've got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!

I see gene wilder is not his real name. I wonder how many people use a stage name, and why?
