Dom DeLuise, sidekick actor beloved by hundreds, is dead at 75. His greatest films include Haunted Honeymoon, Smokey and the Bandit II and Spaceballs (he was the voice of Pizza the Hut). He worked with Gene Wilder, Burt Reynolds and Mel Brooks and made a mean spicy arrabiata sauce. He is survived by his many character actor sons.
