Leslie Nielsen 1926-2010

We at Jigsaw's Lair are saddened to hear of the death of comic actor Leslie Nielsen. He was 84 years old. Everyone will have seen his movies and he will always be Lt.Frank Drebin in the Naked Gun movies.

He also made appearances in so many television shows such as Murder She Wrote, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, The Golden Girls, Father Dowling Mysteries, Who's The Boss and Due South to mention just a few. He was a very versatile actor and you could see him playing any part he wanted to from funny to dramatic. He is a household name and he will always be remembered for his comical talents. His most famous part was in Police Squad and The Naked Gun Movies, but he was good in everything he was in. I liked him and he could always make you smile.

He had a long and varied career and he will be sorely missed as he was one of those actors you expect to be around forever. Sadly that is not the case but at least we have all of his movies to look at and we can laugh along with him. He is survived by his wife and 2 daughters. May he rest in peace..
