Don Adams (from Get Smart) passed away.

Sad news:

From BBC:

Actor Don Adams, best known as bumbling spy Maxwell Smart in 1960s TV spy spoof Get Smart, has died at the age of 82.
According to his agent, he died of a lung infection at Cedars Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Born Donald James Yarmy in New York in 1923, Adams began his career as a comic and impressionist before landing the lead role in Get Smart in 1965. The show, which ran for five years, was revived 25 years later with most of its original cast intact.

From Cnet:

The late Don Adams, perhaps best known as Maxwell Smart on a 1960s TV series that spoofed James Bond movies, is being remembered all around the Web for his comedic performances, his unforgettable wry voice, and for his catch-phrase lines.
In addition to his role on "Get Smart," Adams, 82, was the voice for the popular cartoon series, "Inspector Gadget" and the voice of Comet (the coach) in "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," among many other roles.
But the passing Sunday of a man many associate with far-fetched gadgetry--like Smart's famous telephone shoe--also got some bloggers reflecting on how technology has evolved and wondering whether his characters had any influence.
