R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen

From the Washington Post:

Mr. Nielsen, the white-haired actor who had a serious dramatic career before he revealed himself in "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun" as a talented comedian with a genius for deadpan delivery, died Sunday of complications from pneumonia in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He was 84.

On a related note, while a very funny guy, I blame Leslie Nielsen for being in and inspiring some of the worst "comedy" movies of all time, as well. He will be sorely missed.

...and don't call me sorely.
