In a world that makes people angry, sad and confused so frequently, a person who can make us laugh is truly a gift. For me, Leslie Nielsen was one of the funniest movie actors I've ever witnessed.
His deadpan delivery was unmatched. And he left us with an endless supply of quotable lines that will live on forever. If you ever find yourself in need of a pick-me-up, just watch Airplane or one of the Naked Gun movies and I guarantee you will soon be smiling.
Rest in Peace, Leslie.
