Actor Leslie Nielsen has passed away tonight at the age of 84. Nielsen is best remember for his roles in Airplane, the Naked Gun movies, Kentucky Fried Movie and generally being a comedian for his long career. His first role was all the way back in 1950 and he was in the middle of filming The Waterman Movie.

    Airplane and the Nake Gun Movies are classic in my eyes, but looking over his IMDB page, the man starred in a LOT of crap.

    He did actually get his start as a Dramatic actor and was known for that up until Airplane.

    Oh, no. :( I don't normally get bothered by celebrity deaths and whatnot, but Nielsen was one of my foundations of entertainment, so this is pretty harsh for me.

    I've been long overdue to get Police Squad and Naked Gun on DVD, but between this and Black Friday I think it's time to rectify that.

    Spy Hard, Naked Gun series and Wrongfully Accused. I spent way too much time watching those, when I was growing up.

    No matter what the guy was in his roles were always funny and I got a laugh. That awful Scary Movie? He was good. That awful space movie? He was good.

    At least he lived long.

    Oddly my favorite role of his was his turn in Due South - not the later seasons, but in the first. Showed his dramatic chops a bit.

    Not many people realize the guy actually was a serious actor until the later half of his life if not later, comedy came later for him.

    I mean the guy even starred in Forbidden Planet!
