Sad to hear this. His Drebin character is hilarious. No one else could pull off this type of humor like Leslie Nielsen.

Leslie Nielsen: 1926 - 2010

We're losing so many of good ones, the funny ones, the talented ones, the true icons and idols of entertainment.
They can never be replaced and their talent will truly be missed. Sad sad days.

Man, this hurts. Oh sure, maybe not as much as landing on a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts!

I too, am saddened, at his loss.

In his comedic roles (his apparent passion), he defined these characters, flawlessly.

He caused me to laugh ALOT !

His class defining character portrales, will keep him "alive", until the end of days.

One could always tell that he loved his "job" !
