The Life of Reilly



R.I.P. Jose Chung... and a host of other characters that Charles Nelson Reilly played, including himself -- if you grew up in the late 60's to early 70's, the man was practically a close uncle, although a very wiggy one, that would appear on the tv from time to time. LIDSVILLE, MATCH GAME, a lot of tv commercials, guest appearances and voiceovers...

Nowadays, people know him from reruns on the Game Show network, and from his appearance as Darin Morgan's put upon author, Jose Chung, from THE X-FILES and MILLENNIUM.

Not a bad note to leave on...

Jose Chung was a fantastic character that Reilly played wonderfully! Jose Chung Is From Outer Space is my all time favorite X-Files episode. I like to think of him as the anti-Kilgore Trout. Also, if you search Jose Chung at YouTube you'll find a great clip from his Millennium appearance which is a slightly clever parody of Scientology. Hopefully the outpouring of attention Reilly has recieved with the news of his death will bring about a wider distribution of the film version of his one man show.
