What is funny about this story is that when paramedics arrived at the scene they couldn't tell what injuries were real and which were makeup. 16 Zombies Injured During Accident on Set Member reactions:
Nice Zombie work. The "get well" card is a very clever touch.
You have "yuckied" him up quite realistically.... Well done
Thanks everybody, glad you liked it, my first Zombie.
Canadian-American actor Leslie Nielsen, best known for Airplane! and the Naked Gun franchise, died Sunday of complications from pneumonia. He was 84. Throughout his career, Nielsen appeared in over 100 films and 1,500 television programs playing over 220 characters.
Nielsen's most famous lines are from Airplane!, when he asks the pilot if he can fly the plane. Says the pilot, "Surely, you can't be serious." Nielsen responds, "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."
From Dr. Rumack to Lt. Frank Drebin to Col. Buzz Brighton, to Mr. Magoo, Nielsen made audiences laugh by portraying serious characters who were seemingly oblivious to their surroundings.
In remembrance of Leslie, we post some little-known facts about him:
* Nielsen's father was a Mountie. Consequently, Nielsen spent his early childhood in the isolated Yukon Territories.
* Before he was famous, Nielsen served as an aerial gunner for the Royal Canadian Air Force near the end of the Second World War. After he completed his service, he worked as a DJ at a Calgary radio station.
* Nielsen's brother Eric was the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada.
* Leslie was considered for the Jack Nicholson part in The Shining.
For all the laughs you have given, thank you Leslie. You will be missed. Surely.

what movies he could have played in, what alternative careers he could have chosen, immortalize him in paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
