‘Airplane’ and ‘Naked Gun’ Icon Leslie Nielsen Dead at 84

Movie icon and all around funny guy, Leslie Nielsen has died at the age of 84.  He passed away today from complications of pneumonia.  He was surrounded by his loved ones in a hospital near his home in Fort Lauderdale.

You would remember Leslie Nielson from his movies, “Airplane” and the “Naked Gun” series.   And here are some fantastic quotes that will never be forgotten:

Ted Striker: Surely you can’t be serious.
Rumack: I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.

Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It’s a big building with patients, but that’s not important right now.

Leslie Nielson was currently filming The Watermen Movie where he was the voice of Espanosa and this year he also produced Stonerville.
