I'm not kidding. And don't call me Shirley.

Leslie Nielsen, 1926-2010.

RIP.

Two degrees of separation

by JamesRL In reply to Surely you must be kiddin ...

I never met Leslie, but I met his brother Erik on many occasions. He was in politics, and at one point he was the Speaker of the House of Commons. Erik was a very serious guy.

But one of my political friends did meet Leslie. And he had a little device which he kept in his pocket to make fart noises. I've heard journalists commenting he had this for at least a couple of decades, a way of breaking the ice.

He was considered a serious actor before Airplane.

He was a class act

He left such a legacy of great movies. From Forbidden Planet to Airplane and Naked Gun, he was always so entertaining. Its very sad to see him go.
