This past holiday weekend saw two Hollywood greats leave us for good. Known primarily for his fantastic deadpan humor, Leslie Nielsen entertained us for decades in iconic comedies like Airplane! and The Naked Gun series, not to mention the myriad of other television shows (from The Fugitive to Wagon Train to Hawaii Five-O) and movies (Spy Hard, Scary Movie 3, Superhero Movie) he's taken on in a career that first began all the way back in 1950. Nielsen passed away in a hospital in Ft. Lauderdale Florida after experiencing complications with pneumonia. He was 84.
