R.I.P Leslie Nielsen

definitely, one of the absolute comedic geniuses. He will surely be missed.
"And stop calling me Shirley!"
What is just as sad was that so many people forgot that Leslie was a tremendous dramatic actor for decades, long before he re-invented himself as a deadpan, pratfalling comedian in "Airplane!" For example, he was the lead star in the sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet", while also appearing in some of the classic 1970s disaster films, such as "The Towering Inferno" and "Airport".
