Leslie Nielsen, Dead at 84 [rdbrewer]

He was suffering from pneumonia.

His nephew Doug Nielson, told CJOB that Leslie had been in the hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for 12 days and that with family and friends by his side at 5:30pm Sunday “he just fell asleep and passed away.”

What a great guy. I've heard several people say that he was a great guy in person as well, very nice. His work in later years in the comedies was so fantastic that it nearly overshadowed his prior excellent work as a dramatic actor. I think I laughed more and harder watching his movies than any others. He will be missed.
