Hollywood is mourning the loss of legendary actor Leslie Nielsen, who has passed away at the age of 84. The Canadian-born actor came to Hollywood in the 1950's, landing leading roles in such landmark films as Forbidden Planet, but later turned to slapstick comedy with the massive hits Airplane! and the bumbling Lieutenant Frank Drebin in The Naked Gun movies.


Nielsen died Sunday at a hospital near his home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where he was being treated for pneumonia.
