Ator Leslie Nielsen passed away today!
I met him this year at a convention , but could not interview him as his autograph line was so long! He did , however, allow me 3 minutes to sign a few items for me and snap a photo op!
He will be missed. He was a great guy and awesome actor.

My book, Character Kings: Hollywood's Familiar Faces Discuss…Continue

So we get to the…Continue
