Actor, comedian, Canadian Leslie Nielsen died of pneumonia yesterday at the age of 84.  Best known for being in Airplane, playing Lt. Frank Drebin in the Police Squad series and the three Naked Gun movies, Nielsen was entertaining audiences since the 1950s.  While somehow filed under the “I already thought he died” list because the man always looked kind of old, it was still a shock to hear of his passing.  Here’s a well-known clip from Nielsen’s Naked Gun days:

Hat tip to Chris at The “Right” Solutions for reminding me of this clip.
