Leslie Nielsen, a very talented actor with initially vast unknown comedic talent, has died. Airplane!, the first time he acted in a comedic role, is one of my all time favorite movies. Leslie was one of the very few masters of timing and dead pan delivery, and I will forever love his work.

I’d love to see a remake of the “…and don’t call me Shirley” scene, starring Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd.

I wouldn't feel right not posting this. The above comment is not from me, but from Notch.

to admins: feel free to archive it. I just cannot justify leaving this post/merging it in a weeks time.

I personally loved this actor's work too. he was one of the funniest people I've seen in movies. he will surely be missed by nearly everyone.

I just watched Airplane! (called "Fasten your seatbelts, please!" in Czech) today, before I even knew he died. What a coincidence.

The naked gun and spy hard (he did play also in this, right?) were pure awesome :)

This is the first death I've actually cared about in a long time. For once, the world has lost a great and irreplaceable talent.

When Justin Bieber dies, the world will lose an easily replacable 4 year old girl who's parents need to learn "Justin" is not short for "Justina".

"Dracula: Dead and Loving It" was one of my favourite movies, as was Airplane!, and some others I can't remember. :(
