Leslie Nielsen

Tonight, Bloginity is upset to bring you the news that Leslie Nielsen is dead. Nielsen worked extensively on television but is most well known for his roles in The Naked Gun and Airplane.  Nielsen died today due to complications from pneumonia. He was 84.

Nielsen was born in Canada and honed his skills performing in live dramas in New York City.  He then moved to Hollywood, where his good looks, tall frame and acting chops earned him a number of roles. Nielsen often portrayed serious characters, but that all changed in 1980, when Airplane! brought his humorous side to audiences.
