Canadian actor Les Lye died last week, age 84. Why are we reporting the death of an elderly Canadian actor? Lye was the sole adult (and continuous) cast member on the brilliant, early Nickelodeon classic You Can’t Do That on Television. Among the many roles he played on the show (which is actually some excellent sketch comedy that holds up) were Ross the stage director, Barth the disgusting burger joint cook, and the terrible suburban father. Lye also did some voice work for The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin and The Care Bears.
What else did he do? “I don’t know.”
