(CBS4) ― Leslie Nielsen was a serious actor until his career skyrocketed thanks to comedic roles in films such as “Airplane” and “Police Squad.”

Canadian-born funnyman Leslie Nielsen died Sunday of complications from pneumonia.

TMZ is reporting that Nielsen, 84, died at Holy Cross Hospital located near his Fort Lauderdale home, according to Nielsen’s agent.

The actor, well known for his roles in “Airplane” and “The Naked Gun,” series died with his family and close friends at his side at about 5:30 pm.

His “Airplane” co-star, Barbara Billingsley, died last month.

Nielsen’s family requests donations in his name be given to the charity of choice, the family said in a statement on the CNN web site.
