Leslie Nielson passed away yesterday at the age of 84. If you haven't seen Airplane or Naked Gun, make them required viewing before the year ends.

It's sad to hear.

Looking at IMDB and his acting filmography...WOW! he's done a lot of work and not all of it was comedy. Columbo, Ironside, Kojack, Hawaii 5-0, The Poseidon Adventure, Bonanza, Highway to Heaven.... Add in all his comic rolls, the guy was everywhere. It's like losing a family member.

This deeply saddened me when i saw it on FB yesterday morning. Naked Gun flicks were some of my favorite movies growing up. :(

Puz brought up a good point... the fact that he wasn't really a comedic actor for the longest time. I stumbled on an old screen test from when he tried for the role of Ben-Hur, lol. I believe Airplane was his first, at least first major, comedic role. I was reading somewhere that the Zucker Brothers had cast him, Peter Graves, Robert Stack & Lloyd Bridges all to spoof themselves as they all typically played dramatic straight faced roles in tv & film. They described him as a 10 year old boy in the body of a 50 year old man.

Pretty accurate ger. He didn't become a joker until Airplane.

I'm not a fan really of everything after Airplane. The comedy was too staged for my taste. Like a Mel Brooks movie.

PS. God bless Tony Curits too.

My friends had a big Leslie Nieson movie marathon when we heard. All the Naked Guns, Airplane... anything we could find with him in it. Even the Scary Movie he was in. Either on Netflix or Red Box.

We would laugh and then all stop laughing and be sad for a second. He was one of my favorite actors growing up.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
