RIP: Leslie Nielsen

Passed today at 84. One of my favorite actors for any number of dramatic and comedy roles (heck, he'd been acting since the 50s!!), but of course his parts in the Airplane and Naked Gun/Police Squad franchises will always be tops in my book.

Thanks for the entertainment, Leslie. You will be missed. RIP.

Indeed. I heard the news over the book of faces.

I am saddened to incredible levels.

"He'll be doing all his arsen from the County Jail"

RIP.

One of the funniest television moments of my youth was his fart machine when being interviewed on Wogan in the '80's. I can still remember laughing so much it actually hurt.

Re: RIP: Leslie Nielsen

Very sad. You guys ever read his book, The Naked Truth? It's a parody of Hollywood autobiographies and it makes all sorts of outlandish claims. It's hilarious.

My recommendation, check out Forbidden Planet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forbidden_Planet for a classic of SciFi starring a young Lesley Nielson back when he was leading man material!

My second favorite classic asci-fi movie right behind The Day The Earth Stood Still. Anne Francis was hot in FB, too!
