^That just means we need about 12-14 more.

Sad to see he's died. This means I'll have to break out Airplane and The Naked Gun movies this week...

Seems like it wasn't that long ago that Peter Graves (one of his costars in Airplane) passed.

^Let us not forget the brave commander in Forbidden Planet. IMHO, his best role.

I watched Sacry Movie 4 last weekend. Not his best but one of his last.

I've been saddened by the deaths of other actors recently but this one actually brought a tear to my eye. Thank you Mr. Nielsen for all the laughs.

I was shocked to hear it. He's always seemed so incredibly alive in each role that its hard to imagine him being gone.
