Letterman sidekick Calvert DeForest dead at 85

ahhh, man! I really liked this guy. Stayed up as a 17 year old kid watching Letterman back in the day, and thought the world of Larry Bud…here’s a quote.

Calvert DeForest, the roly-poly character actor with the black-framed glasses and seemingly clueless delivery who developed a cult following as Larry “Bud” Melman on “Late Night with David Letterman” in the 1980s, has died. He was 85.

Source of sadness.
