  1. RIP Leslie. His comedic genius will certainly be missed, the guy always get me laughing hard! Everyone remembers him in the Naked Gun movies, which were great. I also remember him for his small role in Surf Ninjas, one of my favorite childhood movies.

    He probably got to Heaven, saw God, and said "I just want you to know, good luck, we're all counting on you"
