Recognized instantly by young moviegoers of the Eighties and Nineties for his constantly wheezing voice and constantly cheerful, if quirky, disposition, Dominick "Dom" [=DeLuise=] (August 1, 1933 -- May 4, 2009) first started his acting profession on stage, his first role being Tinker the toymaker in a local children's program, soon moving on to comedies like the off-Broadway "The Jackass", where he truly started to shine. In fact, former partner Creator/MelBrooks once quipped that when he hired Dom for one of his films, he would "instinctively add another two days to the schedule because of the constant laughter Dom provided on the set". Along with Brooks, Dom frequently worked with Creator/DonBluth, and was known to [[RoleReprisal reprise the characters]] he voiced in just about every sequel or TV series they later appeared in.

* ForWantOfANail: In his favor. Creator/MelBrooks originally wanted to to give the role of Father Fyodor to Creator/PeterSellers, but Sellers wasn't available, so the role went to Dom instead. Dom would then end up as a member of Brooks' ProductionPosse, appearing in a total of six Brooks films over the course of twenty years.
