Rickles voiced Mr. Potato head in the iconic 1995 Disney film, as well as the movie's two sequels and several Toy Story shorts and specials, while Hanks and Allen played Woody and Buzz Lightyear, respectively.

"Don Rickles is one of the biggest reasons I am a comic today," Allen said in a statement to Et. "I feel bad, mostly for everyone in Heaven who will now learn first hand from the sharpest wits ever, what it's like to be Rickled."

Hanks took to Twitter to honor his friend, writing, "A God died today. Don Rickles, we did not want to ever lose you. Never. Hanx."

Newswire: R.I.P. Don Rickles, comedy icon

6 April 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

As confirmed by Variety, legendary insult comic Don Rickles—who is probably better known to younger people as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story movies—died this morning from kidney failure. He was 90.

Born in Queens and raised in a Yiddish-speaking household, Rickles described himself as the clown of his high school and, later, his naval unit. As an 18-year-old, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy during World War II with the intention of entering the Special Services as an entertainer; instead, he was put on board the U.S.S. Cyrene as a Seaman First Class. Rickles served in the Philippines for two years, returning to the U.S. in 1946 to begin his career as a performer in earnest.

Hoping to become an actor, Rickles attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where his classmates included Grace Kelly, Jason Robards, and Anne ...

Best known to younger viewers as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the “Toy Story” movies, Rickles came to increased prominence as a regular guest on both “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” and “The Late Show With David Letterman” after honing his craft in clubs. None were spared from his verbal jabs, including Frank Sinatra; onstage in 1957, Rickles told the singer to “Make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody.”

Don Rickles, Legendary Insult Comic, Dies at 90

Abrasive comic Don Rickles, the honorary Rat Pack member and celebrity roast guest whose career spanned six decades, has died. He was 90.

Rickles died Thursday morning at his home in Los Angeles from kidney failure, his longtime publicist Paul Shefrin confirmed. He would have turned 91 on May 8.

Though he appeared in films and on television, Rickles’ mainstay was always nightclub performances, appearing in Las Vegas and elsewhere into his late 80s. He also found late success as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the “Toy Story” films, which were exceptional box office performers, and popped up frequently on latenight talkshows.

Rickles’ career had its ups and downs as comedic tastes changed, and his curmudgeonly persona was sometimes out of kilter with audience tastes, but he survived long after many of his contemporaries had disappeared into retirement. And when he was hot, he was a potent club headliner, insulting his »

Shrek 5 is in Development and Promises to be a “Big Reinvention”

It’s not that anyone will ever forget the significance of the Shrek franchise, but doesn’t it almost feel like the last time we even thought about the movie Shrek was decades ago?  Shrek Forever After came out in 2010 and since that time there have been just so many animated hits that people (including myself) haven’t given Shrek a second thought.  You’ve got Frozen, Wreck it Ralph, Cars,  Toy Story, and about 500 other animated films in the works with their sequels.  Don’t forget that Shrek Forever after grossed over $700 million at the box office, so the thought of

Review: ‘The Boss Baby’ is a Frantic, Absurd Consumer Product

31 March 2017 3:21 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Tim has a healthy, overactive imagination. A C-student who frequently daydreams, his little brother keeps his eye on the prize, managing family expectations while reporting to the head of Baby Corp., an industrial farm in the sky where babies really come from. This is the premise of The Boss Baby, a Saturday-morning cartoon that’s absurdly enjoyable in passages, even if it occasionally feels more like a brand experience than an actual movie. It is colorful and frantic, but still leaves one wanting something more substantive — perhaps a mini-middle manager is a tough sell for the kiddies. Thankfully it never dives into a deep analysis of Six Sigma and other management theories, even if Alec Baldwin’s voice performance as the film’s title character channels his 30 Rock Ge executive Jack Donaghy.

Ghost In The Shell And Boss Baby Take Another Crack At The Box Office Beast -- The Weekend Warrior

31 March 2017 7:39 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Two Very Different Movies Look to Divide Up the Weekend Box Office Business

With Disney’s Beauty and the Beast continuing to dominate at the box office with $90 million this past weekend, and Saban’s Power Rangers (Lionsgate) also doing exceedingly well with $40 million in second place, you wouldn’t think anyone would try to release a movie that might get overshadowed by those two blockbusters.

That said, what’s interesting about this weekend is the fact there are two very different movies that are competing very heavily for second place with DreamWorks Animation’s latest animated family film, The Boss Baby (20th Century Fox), taking on the live action English remake of Ghost In The Shell (Paramount), starring Scarlett Johansson.

'The Boss Baby' Review: This Is Not the Trump-Trolling Toon You're Looking For

29 March 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Let's address the elephant-sized diaper in the room, shall we? No, The Boss Baby is not about Donald Trump. Not that director Tom McGrath, or screenwriter Michael McCullers, or anyone at Fox or Dreamworks Animation would ever say that it was; it's safe to assume that this adaptation of Marla Frazee's 2010 children's book was in the works long before our current administration slithered its way into office. But given that this tiny tyrant is voiced by none other than Alec Baldwin, who's carved out a lucrative side career imitating an infantile commander-in-chief, »

Zootopia Lawsuit Claims Disney Ripped-Off Total Recall Writer

21 March 2017 6:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of last year's biggest hits at the box office was Disney's animated blockbuster Zootopia, which crossed the $1 billion worldwide threshold and became the second highest-grossing original movie of all time, albeit a distant second place behind James Cameron's Avatar ($2.7 billion). Today we have word that Zootopia might not be an original movie at all, with a screenwriter named Gary Goldman filing a lawsuit against Disney, claiming the studio stole an original idea he had that he reportedly pitched to the studio twice. Gary Goldman has a number of major writing credits to his name, including the cult classic Big Trouble In Little China and the original Total Recall.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the screenwriter pitched his project, which included a live-action movie component entitled Looney and an animated movie called Zootopia. The writer pitched this franchise two separate times to Disney, in the years 2000 and 2009, with the »

1988 Pixar Demo Reel Probably Isn’t What You Expect

21 March 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nope, you’re not going to see some early versions of “Toy Story” or “Finding Nemo” in this demo reel. Back before Pixar was the Pixar we all know and love, the company was in the business of producing extremely high-end imaging computers. The demo reel that’s been unearthed shows almost 10 minutes of incredibly boring, outdated computer-speak and absolutely zero hopping lamps.
