- - Surely Leslie Nielsen can't be dead!
Yes, he is dead...and don't call him Shirley! Appearing in over 100 films including the Sci-Fi classic Forbidden Planet, Leslie Nielsen enjoyed great success as both a serious and comic actor. When you see him in a serious role in one of his earlier films like The Poseidon Adventure, you almost wait for Leslie to do or say something outrageous! The classic gags would come later in Airplane, Police Squad, and the Naked Gun series. Leslie enjoyed a second cinematic life in comedy, and was a natural master of it.
Thank you, Leslie Nielsen, for brightening our lives, and for doing a multitude of things well!
