Leslie Nielsen dead at 84 :(

Quote:
Leslie Nielsen, who made audiences laugh with his ridiculous seriousness and deadpan deliveries in the absurd scenes of comedy films like Airplane! and Naked Gun has died. He was 84.

His agent confirmed that the actor died Sunday near his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., surrounded by his "lovely wife and friends" at 5:34 p.m. ET, due to complications of pneumonia.

Nielsen had been hospitalized for nearly two weeks as a result of pneumonia, his agent said.

"Just in this last 48 hours, the infection has gotten too much," his nephew Doug Nielsen told Canadian radio station CKNW. "He just fell asleep and passed away."

This sucks, was just watching The Naked Gun 33 1/3 with my Grandpa the other day, and was just about to find my DVD of Airplane and watch it

Well now I have nothing to look forward to but a bunch of unfunny young hack actors in comedies.

RIP you hilarious bastard.

Might it also be a good time to announce that Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, died at 87 today?
