Remembering Leslie Nielsen
The comedy community lost one of its all time greats when “Airplane!” and “Naked Gun” star Leslie Nielsen passed away from pneumonia near his Ft. Lauderdale home yesterday. Fans and celebs are flooding the web with tributes to the late great star, but we think this very candid moment from a Canadian morning show sums up Leslie Nielsen perfectly. Sweet, silly, simultaneously slapstick and dead pan. Rest in peace, Lt. Drebin. You served us well.
