A hospital? What is it?

A big building with patients, but that isn't important right now.

RIP MR. Nielsen, always loved your work.

Leslie Nielsen was a great friend of Jimmy Doohan's. I imagine they're cracking open a bottle or two in Heaven right now.

Wonderful thought, chasco. And I believe you're right. Nielsen was an original. A comic with fantastic presence. Truly a loss. What an actor!

Just read this on the news - sad.

But, maybe later I'll bust out Airplane! and maybe Forbidden Planet and have a watch.

I'll remember not to call him............you know!

Just found out this morning. I've always been a fan of Mr. Neilson's work. His first movie was Forbidden Planet, my favorite movie of all time. In fact, I just watched FP again yesterday. He will be missed.

And Irvin Kershner - director of The Empire Strikes Back - has also passed away.

Doesn't bode well for someone in Hollywood right now...........we all know the rule of three.

Empire Strikes Back is the greatest sequel of all time in my opinion RIP Mr Kershner
