Very sad indeed. Airplane! and The Naked Gun are two of my all-time favorites.

What a major loss - a great comedian. Airplane is one of my favorite movies of all time. To hell with everyone who says otherwise, he was easily Canada's funniest actor.

RIP, Leslie - thank you for the laughs.

I'll also mention that, while he's famous for comedy, Leslie Nielsen was also an incredible dramatic actor. Very sad to see him go.

My youth and sense of humor would never have been the same without Airplane and The Naked Gun.

I watched a career retrospective this morning. When Nielsen was younger, it was striking how much he resembled Daniel Craig. Craig should take over The Naked Gun franchise when he's white haired.

RIP

    Leslie Nielsen used to always wield this little rubber device called a Handi-Gas that emitted fart sounds. In fact, he bought them by the gross and gave them out to people.

Aw man - you just triggered a memory of 20+ years ago. Leslie was down here in Oz promoting something and was doing a straight interview with some pompous self important movie critic. All through the interview he would use the farter and then no sell it like nothing happened.

To a teenage boy such as I was at the time, it was hilarious to see a Hollywood star in Oz acting up like that in an interview.

In my most recent work meeting, I got in a 'Don't call me Shirley' joke. Thanks Leslie. You were a giant. RIP

The real killers are responsible for this. Someone release OJ from prison so he can scour golf courses nationwide to prevent a similar event from occurring again.
Airplane + Naked Gun equals legend.

I just got the Back To The Future blu ray yesterday. It made me so sad to see him hosting the BTTF night on NBC special before the release of BTTF 2.

I really miss that man. I'll bring up a small role no one else had, I loved him on MASH in "The Ringbanger".

His looks towards Burns (who Hawkeye and Trapper convinced Col. Brighton that Burns was gay and after the Col.) were gold.
