In Memoriam: Leslie Nielsen (1926-2010)
Leslie Nielsen, star of stage and screen, has died today at the age of 84. I can think of few actors more universally beloved than Leslie Nielsen. And for good reason, since he was incredibly talented, absolutely hilarious, and effortlessly charming. He was the kind of actor who was funny even in movies that were otherwise unwatchable, and even when he wasn't, we still forgave him because we loved him so much.
Go honor his memory by renting Airplane, Naked Gun, or Dracula: Dead and Loving It. All funny. He will be missed.
