    Default Leslie Nielsen R.I.P.

    He must have had the fish.

    --- --- ---

    Canadian actor Leslie Nielsen, who most famously achieved global success in comedy movies such as "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun," has died aged 84, Manitoba radio station CJOB reported Sunday. His death was first reported in unconfirmed messages on Twitter late Sunday that suggested the actor had died in the hospital after suffering from pneumonia.

    His nephew Doug Nielson, told CJOB that Leslie had been in the hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for 12 days and that with family and friends by his side at 5:30pm Sunday "he just fell asleep and passed away."

    Born in Regina, Canada, Leslie Nielsen appeared in more than 100 movies and hundreds of television shows over the course of his career. Awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he was also made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2002 despite also being a naturalized US citizen.

    He was married four times, and had two children from his second marriage, Maura and Thea Nielsen.

    Damn. I love a lot of the movies he's done, or been in. Naked Gun: Police Squad will always, always be my favorite comedy movie.

    Yes, he's been in a few movies I've enjoyed over the years. Thing is, so much of what he did was serious that when he did stuff like "Airplane!" and "Police Squad!", I know I was taken aback. Great comedic talent.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Nielsen.

    Greatest exchange ever:

    "Nice beaver."

    "Thanks. I Just had it stuffed."

    I think I have to credit the movies/shows he was involved in with helping me transition from childhood "comedy" to comedy. My dad was a big Zucker movie fan, and I saw both Airplanes and all the Naked Guns. I still remember seeing the one shot for Naked Gun 2 1/2 in the old movie theatre we had in town. It had 7 screens and that was it. Now we have 4 movie theatres with a total of 52 screens.

    Anyway, I appreciated the Airplanes as a child and the Naked guns as a child/young adult. But then my father rented the Police Squad! episodes, and I started rewatching the Airplane and Naked Gun movies and I appreciated them on a whole new (adult) level.

    RIP, Leslie. I was just talking about you last week with my father and how perfect you were for those movies after a career in dramatic roles. You were in the hospital at that time, apparently. Thanks for helping me love comedy.

    A couple off the top of my head:

    You're part of a dying breed Hapsburg, like people who can name all 50 states.

    The truth hurts doesn't it Hapsburg. Oh sure, not as much as jumping on a bicycle with the seat missing but it hurts.

    Before you could say spread 'em, I was behind the cold gray walls of Statesville prison. I was surrounded by murderers, drug dealers and rapists. It was like being in the stands at a Los Angeles Raiders game.

    Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.

    Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel things out.

    Hot chick: I could have two lovers. Drebin: Kinky. But I like my sex the way I play basketball. One on one and with as little dribbling as possible.

    This is your last chance Angel Drawers. And I don't mean one of those major league baseball Steve Howe kinda last chances!

    Obviously those films had great (and weird) writers but Neilsen pulled it off as no one else could have. Probably the hardest I ever laughed at a movie was in NGI when he went into the urinal and still had that live mike on him. Still hurt from that.

    Another funny movie he did was Wrongfully Accused, a spoof of the Fugitive. Richard Crenna also had a great part in that.

    Anyway, many thanks to Mr. Leslie for the years of laughs he provided me. You were one-of-a-kind. Much appreciated!!

    RIP.

    You know what sucks, worse than him dying? There's nobody to pick up the comic torch from him. A few, like Steve Carrell come close, but not quite.
