    I was stunned when I heard about this. I guess that when somebody like Leslie Nielson has been around so long, it is easy to forget to treasure them while they are still here.

    He died in his sleep, after telling his doctor and his nephew his final words of encouragement, "I just want to tell you both good luck, we're all counting on you."

    I met Lesley a few months ago.

    He was very weak then, at least compared to his normal spritely self.

    That said, he shook my hand tightly and posed for a brilliant photograph.

    In the first one we had together I say with some hesitation he pretended he was dead!

    Good man. Grew up on his films. RIP Leslie.
