Comic actor Leslie Nielsen dies in Florida, aged 84

LOS ANGELES — Canadian comic actor Leslie Nielsen, star of a string of madcap spoof movies including “Airplane” and “The Naked Gun,” died of complications from pneumonia in Florida on Sunday, a spokesman said. He was 84.

Nielsen is probably best known for playing the bumbling cop Lt. Frank Drebin in the “Naked Gun” franchise, but enjoyed a movie and television career spanning more than 60 years.

So Sad
