The great comedic actor is dead at the age of 84. Best known for his roles in Airplane!, Police Squad! and The Naked Gun, Leslie Nielsen has been acting since 1956, appearing in more than 100 films, and 1,500 TV shows. But it wasn’t until his deadpan performance of Dr. RumackĀ  in Airplane! (1980) that Canadian-born Nielsen became known as one of Hollywood’s funniest funnymen. His career would never look the same.

Surely, he will be remembered as one of the best comedic actors of our time — and don’t call him Shirley.

Yes, he really was funny. His sort of comedy was never my cup of tea, but I still enjoyed his work because he was so good. He was one of the very best comedic actors of the last 30 years or so on the silver screen.
