He portrayed over 220 characters during his career in Hollywood, and Leslie Nielsen is being remembered by some of his biggest fans.
"American Idol" judge/talk radio host Ryan Seacrest wrote on his Twitter wall, “Sad to hear about Leslie Nielsen passing. To this day 'Airplane' is still one of my favorite comedies ever."
Meanwhile, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" funnyman Russell Brand said, “RIP. Leslie Nielsen, he will be missed” and included a famous quote from "Airplane."
The comments come just after the “Naked Gun” actor passed away on Sunday (November 28) at 5:34PM of complications from pneumonia. He was 84.
