Some sad news out of CJOB today as they report that funnyman and actor Leslie Nielsen has passed away in hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He was 84. They add that the star of comedy hits such as Airplane and the Naked Gun series dies of complications from pneumonia, according to his nephew Doug Nielsen, who lives in Richmond. Sure Nielson starred in some of the best slapstick comedies of all time, but he also dabbled a bit in horror taking on roles in Creepshow, Day of the Animals, Prom Night, Repossessed, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, Scary Movie 3, and even Stan Helsing. He also starred in a few TV series from “Thriller” to “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, and “Tales of Tomorrow”. We bid a fond farewell. He will be missed.
