'Time to make the doughnuts'

Michael Vale, the actor best known for his portrayal of a sleepy-eyed Dunkin' Donuts baker who said "Time to make the doughnuts," has died. He was 83.

He was a pop culture icon and Dunkin' Donut commercials were never the same after his retirement in 1997. You'll be missed Fred the Doughnut man.
