An "accidental" overdose is what your manager/family/peers say when they don't want the media honking about your drug problem/alcoholism/suicidal tendencies.

He was definitely one of the comedians I enjoyed, and I got to see him once live, so that was cool.

It's a shame, a lot of comedians don't really have their shit together.

Oh no! He was one of the best parody actors ever, and one of the best actors Canada has ever produced. This may be the worst death of this year. Goodbye Mr. Nielsen keep drivin that eggplant in heaven.

Very sad to hear about Leslie Neilsen. I saw all 3 "Naked Gun" films in the theater and have all 3 films on DVD.

Also, I'm planning to get the "Police Squad" series on DVD if its available.

I'm going to miss Len Lesser. He was one of the best old actors of 90's television.

Goodbye Leo. Let's hope in Heaven someone's answering that damn phone.

Not suprised, I had a feeling she would pass away after winning the Grammys with her "Back To Black" album.

The only thing I'm surprised about is that it didn't happen earlier. It's kind of ironic that I'm writing this while watching Disaster Movie on tv, which features Nicole's great Amy Winehouse impression. Man I hate it that Nicole, Crista, and Ike were in this movie. They are so much better than it and it just diminishes the great writing of MAD. People can hate MAD, but I think everyone can agree that it's better than any of these parody films.

Sorry for getting off on a the MADtv tangent, but it was bound to happen. I just can't help it.

Even though people keep saying it wasn't surprising,doesn't mean it wasn't still somewhat of a shock.she's been a mess for a while now and some how she kept going.I feel sorry for her family who tried so badly to help her but u can't help someone that doesn't want help.
If you only know her because of "rehab" and her druggie antics...you should listen to back to black...there was so much more to her then what ended up in gossip magazines.a really great album
