RIP, Leslie Nielsen
Leslie Nielsen has died. There would be no William Shatner without Leslie Nielsen. He was a hilarious comedic actor in films like Airplane!, The Naked Gun and Police Squad! He also played it straight in the forerunner to Star Trek, The Forbidden Planet. The L.A. Times has an obituary.
