Actor Leslie Nielson

I just learned via Hollywood Reporter that actor Leslie Nielson died tonight at a Ft. Lauderdale hospital due to complications from pneumonia. This is very sad news for both Chudd and I. For us, Nielsons performances in Airplane and the Naked Gun films were some of our favorite movie moments. I can’t even count the number of time I’ve seen Naked Gun 2 1/2. The way he dead panned such a serious detective while pulling off the greatest slap stick moments ever is classic and I hope his work will continue to be found and enjoyed by future generations. I’m sad. This sucks. I need a Snickers.

Below are a bunch of clips from the Naked Gun films. Lt. Drebin was never funnier. O.J. did pretty good too…
