I didn’t know he was already 84. Even when acting silly he always kept that sort of natural handsomeness and elegance.
Well he made a lot of people laugh worldwide. RIP

It’s sad for someone’s family no matter the age they pass away, #20. Condolences to the Nielsen family. This man made so many people laugh over the years, and that definitely counts for something.

Surely, you can’t be serious.
