RIP Leslie Nielsen.

Hey, why do people say "passed" instead of "passed away"? That always annoyed me when I heard people say that. Its like an unfinished sentence or something. Anyways, RIP Leslie Nielson.

A versatile actor and a fine human being. The world seemed a better place because he was in it.

Thank God we can still honor his legacy through his work. May he rest in peace.

I enjoyed many of his movies over the years, including airplane. I'm a big fan of Don Knotts and bought the Reluctant Astronaut DVD and he was very young in that movie. Very sad. RIP Leslie.

oh good grief! Same diff.
Saying passed away seems kinda foolish to me. Passed away to......where?
Perhaps I should have said passed on. Died. Bit the dust. Bottom line is he is not alive any longer.

I shall miss him. Apart from loving him as a comic actor ,he was also a superb drama actor something many people are unaware of.

I was lucky enough to see him over 10 years ago in Edinburgh in a one man play where he played "Clarence Darrow", one of the most impressive performance I ever saw on the stage. He was truly breath-taking and I got a nice letter back from him when I wrote to thank him for a perfect evening.

He seemed like a gentleman and will have left many of us with many a smile upon our faces. I loved him in "Due South" as well as the usual culprits . Canada has lost one of the greats.

R.I.P Leslie , you will be much missed.

He will be missed. He had a long and varied career.

Interestingly, a few weeks ago I purchased the newly-released DVD set of "Thriller - hosted by Boris Karloff" (a television show that aired for a few years beginning in 1960). The premier episode featured Mr. Nielsen, who was excellent (as a business man being stalked by a crazy woman).

I also loved him in the short-lived TV show Police Squad - In Color!
