Leslie Nielsen (1926-2010)

Who will protect the Queen from Reggie Jackson now?

Because sometimes it is easier to copy and paste something rather than re-hash what has already been written hundreds of times...here's what TMZ posted about the passing of comedic actor Leslie Nielsen.

Legendary funny man Leslie Nielsen died today of complications of pneumonia in a hospital near his home in Fort Lauderdale, this according to his agent. He was 84. His agent tells TMZ Nielsen passed surrounded by his wife and friends at about 5:34 PM ET.  Nielsen was best known for his roles in "Airplane" and the "Naked Gun" series.

And speaking of the "Naked Gun" series...here's a classic clip of Leslie Nielsen as Frank Drebin as an umpire.



And as Enrico Pallazzo.

He will be missed by all, he was a joy to watch. Loved him. Heaven has just received a wonderful addition.
