Well I can’t say for sure I knew he was still alive, but it is sad to see him go. Leslie Nieslen hasn’t been the public eye for a while now, but he just passed away at 84 from pneumonia.
Overlooking his recent addiction to Scary Movie movies, he was the classic star of countless comedies, most notably the Naked Gun series and Airplane! He was the leader of the last generation of slapstick comedians, before the likes of Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell ever came along.
He will be missed.
