I hope this isn't true.

Where did you find out about this?

B/C I've just checked imdb.com just now and says that he's pretty much still alive.

LOS ANGELES (AP)-- Comedian Don Adams is dead at 82.

The the wry-voiced comedian starred as the fumbling secret agent Maxwell Smart in the 1960s television spoof of James Bond movies,
Get Smart."

His friend and former agent, Bruce Tufeld, said Adams died of a lung infection last night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He says the actor broke his hip a year ago and had been in ill health.

As the inept Agent 86 of the super-secret federal agency CONTROL, Adams captured TV viewers with his antics in combatting the evil agents of CHAOS. When his explanations failed to convince the villains or his boss, he tried another tack:
"Would you believe...?" It became a national catchphrase.

Get Smart twice won the Emmy for best comedy series with three Emmys for Adams as comedy actor.

Adams married and divorced three times and had seven children.

He also served as the voice for the popular cartoon series, "Inspector Gadget." In 1980, he appeared as Maxwell Smart in a feature movie, "The Nude Bomb," about a madman whose bomb
destroyed people's clothing.

Damnit to hell, why is it always the good ones? The amount of classic TV stars deaths in the past year is just too much to handle. I think I'm gonna cry. And just before the DVDs. I hope there's a good tribute on the discs. How horrid this is, its a living nightmare. Let us all take a moment to pray for Don's family and in his honor, give him a moment of silence.

Rest in Peace Mister Adams. You were great, we love you.

Cool

Can't believe the man who introduced us to such catch phrases as "sorry about that chief" and "would you believe..." is gone. All Get Smart fans should spend a minute under the "cone of silence" to honour Mr. Adams memory. Thank-you Don Adams for giving us the gift of laughter! You will be missed.

I guess it seems like it's always the good ones because those are the ones that affect us the most. Really, though, it's both the good and the bad and, most especially, it's the old. I'm very sorry to see Mr Adams go because I've always been a really big fan, but I take some comfort in the fact that he had a long and rich life and this didn't happen until he was 82.

For those of you who were around in the 70's, do you remember a show Don Adams had, it was called "Don Adams Screen Test"? He had two ordinary people take a screen test of the same scenario and the one who had done the best would get an opportunity at stardom. I loved this show.
I didn't realize Don was soooo old. My God, I guess time does go by.
