Loved this guy. Awesome comedic ability.

That's a damn shame.


Jules801 11-28-2010 10:45 PM

Sad, sad day.


Jaydepps 11-28-2010 10:49 PM

Shame, he was hilarious in the Naked Gun series.

ForsbergIsOdin 11-28-2010 10:49 PM

Ah, life once again being a *****.

RIP. A man who made me laugh many times.

Beef Invictus 11-28-2010 11:01 PM

That is a shame, there can never be too many funny people in the world

Anybody else remember that he was briefly a spokesman for PECO before they became the sponsor of the Flyers Power play?

Leslie defended them during time they were being attacked daily in the news... Philadelphia Electric Company hired him for an eleven part TV campaign to educate consumers. This was before he went totally to comedy and was known and respected only for his acting talents.

Rest in peace, Mr. Crazy-man... You were a joy to watch.

This is awful, awful news. He was awesome. I always enjoyed his films. RIP Nielsen.

Surely you can't be serious.

Yes I am serious, and my name's not Shirley

Wow, Airplane was just on TV yesterday or the day before. Glad I caught it as a reminder of how great Leslie was.

"Protecting the Queen's safety is a task that is gladly accepted by Police Squad. No matter how silly the idea of having a queen might be to us, as Americans, we must be gracious and considerate hosts."

I heard this before and hoped it wasn't true. This was the first place I thought of even though he's done a ton of movies and tv shows. A Canadian icon for sure. RIP "Shirley".

SolidSnakeUS 11-29-2010 02:57 AM

Sucks beyond belief... seriously, he was so damn funny. RIP man.

LEIFey 11-29-2010 07:24 AM

He had one of those simply hilarious faces. I loved his movies.


CharlieGirl 11-29-2010 07:31 AM

Such sad news.

I said it in the other thread, but thank you sir for giving me so many laughs over the years, and into the future.


Appleyard 11-29-2010 08:36 AM

He was a legend on this side of the atlantic as well, loved him in airplane and his cameos in due south stole the show. A sad day. RIP.

GKJ 11-29-2010 09:00 AM
