Leslie Nielsen, star of over 100 films, has died aged 84 of pneumonia.

Best known for the spoof movies Naked Gun and Airplane!, before his comedy roles I remember him as a fairly straight actor - the SCi-Fi film The Forbidden Planet being one (based on The Tempest).

R.I.P Leslie.

That's from 2010 Llew. In fact I'm fairly sure we commemorated his passing then.
