He was unique, funny, positive, and true to himself despite an industry that pushes its stars to conform. While I loved him in Buffy, my favorite role of his was as The Spleen in Mystery Men.

RIP Paul Reubens, thank you for making the world a lighter, brighter, funnier place.


Paul Reubens’ Legacy Includes the Best Scene In Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the Movie)
In the 1992 film, Reubens made his character's staking immortal with the power of improv

In Backstory, Kuzui confirms that Reubens improv’ed the entire death sequence, after she told him “Paul, you just die, figure it out.” It’s a bold thing to say to a former Groundlings cast member who has had literal years of professional improv training, and what results is a symphony of over-acting, as Reubens ducks in and out of the frame, milking every moment of his passing for what it’s worth.

It maybe seems a bit grim to eulogize an actor’s death by celebrating a scene in which he dies, but it feels appropriate in this case… because he never really dies. Just like how Reubens’ work will live on in our memories, and on the screen.


"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther

Interesting to see a man who hasn't done much in the last decade still remembered so fondly.
