I'm a big fan of Canadians. They tend to bring more joy into my life than one would expect. And today, perhaps my favorite Canadian of all has passed away.
Leslie William Nielsen was one of my idols from the time I was in elementary school. He influenced so much of who I am today, and he had a strong role in defining my creative passions. The amount of joy he brought into people's lives, mine included, is incalculable. He will be remembered from his serious roles as B-Movie star to his deadpan genius in his later roles.
RIP, Leslie Nielsen, the God of Deadpan Comedy.
