Larry 'Bud' Melman, RIP

Budmelman Calvert DeForest, who played David Letterman's original sidekick, the clueless Larry "Bud" Melman, died Monday at the age of 85. “Everyone always wondered if Calvert was an actor playing a character, but in reality he was just himself -- a genuine, modest and nice man,” Letterman said. “To our staff and to our viewers, he was a beloved and valued part of our show, and we will miss him.”
