    Leslie Neilson: Beloved Hollywood Actor Dies at 84


    My all time favorite comedic actor died today 11.28.10 of complications of pneumonia. The Canadian - American Actor and comedian was 84 years old.


    Please watch our video for our personal live tribute. Mr Neilson starred in two of the greatest screwball comedy films ever made, both directed by the Zucker brothers. Both Airplane and The Naked Gun are my all time comedy film favorites. It was "Impossible" not to laugh on both these movies.


    He appeared in over 1,500 TV programs, and over 100 films. Ironically tonight, Hollywood celebrated the Christmas season with our annual Hollywood Christmas Parade - Where CNN's Larry King was the Grand Marshall. But for me, my son, and my dad, its Leslie Neilson that we are celebrating.


    So instead of going to see Burlesque as planned, we stayed home. Yes, I watched The Naked Gun again, for the 20th time. I am still laughing with Leslie, up there in Hollywood Heaven.
