RIP, Leslie Nielson

Sorry to hear about Leslie Nielson's passing. He grew up in Canada's Northwest Territories, and his father was a Mountie, which helped him in a guest role on Due South twice. His gift for comedy came as a surprise to people used to the dramatic actor of his early career, but it made him even more popular than ever.

TV's Police Squad, a cop show spoof, led to the Naked Gun movies and eventually Airplane!, and his comedic career was off and running!

He passed away from pneumonia at age 84.

RIP, Leslie.
