Wilder Quits Acting

Published on March 27, 2007 with 1 Comment

Movie veteran Gene Wilder has officially quit acting to concentrate on writing novels and memoirs – because he’s sick of the projects he’s getting offered.

The Young Frankenstein star hasn’t appeared in a film for over 15 years and hasn’t acted at all since playing Mr Stein in sitcom Will + Grace – and doesn’t think he ever will again.

“The things that I’m offered, so much of it is based on the ‘f’ word and the mother ‘f’ and the ‘f’ing’ and ‘f you’ and all that, or special effects or obvious sex,” he says.

  1. I say good for him!!! :)
    let him do what HE wants now as his literary works are great-more expressive even!
    that is one of my favorite hobbies, curling up with a good book and Gene’s are books are the best way to end a good day!
