Hi Shouters! I thought we could play some end of year games today, starting with celebrities who’ve died in 2010.
How many can we name? Can I suggest that you make one suggestion per comment, stating who died, what they were famous for, and why you’ll miss them (if at all)?
I’ll start with Leslie Neilsen because he’s the first one who pops to mind. Neilsen was a fantastic actor, best known for playing the bumbling Frank Drebin on the spoof cop show Police Squad. I first saw him on The Naked Gun, and have caught a lot of his comedy films over the years. Airplane (don’t call me Shirley), Repossessed and so many more. He died on 28th November 2010 at the age of 84.
He was absolutely the king of deadpan comedy for me. He could be uttering the craziest of lines with a perfectly straight face. Much missed.
