RIP Leslie Nielsen


An actor who will no doubt continue to provide the LOLs for years to come. Nielsen was 84.

LAT: "Nielson died of complications from pneumonia at a hospital near his home, surrounded by his wife, Barbaree, and friends, his agent, John S. Kelly, said in a statement."

A top ten in Leslie Nielsen clips from Hecklerspray, and a life in clips over at The Guardian.

Don't call him Shirley, AFTER THE JUMP...

  5. Good guy. He had a hard early life, his dad was abusive and used to beat him, his brothers and mom. Escaped by joining the Canadian airforce at 17.
