    Sending out my deepest sympathies to his family, friends and fans.
    It's a huge loss to the entertainment industry.

    Leslie Nielsen was a real comic legend, the Naked Gun movies were some of my absolute favourites growning up alongside Airplane! Sad news, he was classic.

    One of my personal favourites.

    R.I.P. It's always a sad loss when someone who can make us laugh is no longer around to do that.

    Aww. :frown1:

    He was hilarious (much better, imo, than contemporaries such as Steve Martin). I always loved the evil bit at the beginning of Police Squad where the 'guest star' was killed, lol. :tongue:

    He was a class act. Not to be overlooked, before he did all the spoof movies and before he perfected his deadpan comic delivery, the art of not being funny, he was a pretty decent dramatic actor and not a bad looker either. Forbidden Planet 1956.

    What a genius. We are losing good people, and their replacements just aren't around.

    Such a shame! He was a hilarious guy, I grew up on the Naked Gun movies. At least he's in a better place now.

    Wow, he started at The Actors Studio in 1950 and was working on a project when he died. What a great career. We will miss you! RIP Mr. Nielsen. Leslie Nielsen - IMDb

    He was in one of my all time favorite unknown films, Surf Ninjas. My whole family was sad to hear this.
