Micahel Jeter

Jenn noticed in the obituaries today that Michael Jeter died. He played the lovable "Mr. Noodle" on Sesame Street. Mia could say his name ("nooou-nooou"). Jenn and I delighted in his very expressive acting. Elmo always introduced Mr. Noodle as "Mr. Noodle's brother, Mr. Noodle!". Reading Mr. Jeter's obituary, it's striking to realize that you probably have seen him, even if you don't watch Elmo. He was in The Green Mile (with Tom Hanks), Patch Adams (with Robin Williams), and True Crime (with Clint Eastwood). But I won't be missing him in those roles. I'll be missing Mr. Noodle, Elmo's comic relief.
