LESLIE NIELSEN: R.I.P.


STAR OF AIRPLANE HAS DIED


The star of Airplane and Naked Gun, Leslie Nielsen at the age of 84. Nielsen died Sunday, at a hospital near his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


Nielsen had been hospitalized for two weeks for pneumonia. His nephew, Doug Nielsen, told a Canadian radio station that the infection had gotten too much in the last 48 hours. "He just fell asleep and passed away."

Nielsen who seemed to make the ridiculous seem serious by delivering lines with a deadpan face, also appeared in Peyton Place, Dr. Kildare, and The Poseidon Adventure.
