Fail. Why can't Hollywood have more originality? What's next...'Fletch' reboots and the like of other classics?

I like Helms, and he does kind of favor a younger Nielsen. Not crazy about rebooting this classic series, but hey.

I do have a problem with Ed Helms, he is not fit to be Frank. Leslie had a deadpan humor that almost no one has ever topped. Ed Helms is too "goofy". You have to have a serious man playing Frank, but so serious it's funny.

So ya...not really liking this idea.

I like Ed Helms but no, damnit! There just isn't anyone who can do Frank Drebin other than Leslie Neilsen. Without him, this is going to be a disaster.

Exactly! What made Leslie Neilsen so brilliant is that he wasn't a comedic actor. He was a dramatic actor and never stopped being one. He just started taking comedic roles. He was so perfectly straight in the comedic roles. It was the brilliance of his comedy. Ed Helms cannot replicate that.

I just found the tv show a few years ago.

Even better than the movies.

I'm not surprised it's being rebooted. I am disappointed though. And Ed Helms just doesn't feel right for the role.

I do suggest WB cast Helms as George Jetson before the mother****er gets too old to do it as opposed to this.

Why can't Ed play his grandson or something. Neisen's humor is so unique to him that no one can replicate it. it's like trying to replicate Ben Stein.

This is ridiculous, the whole series was Leslie Neisen and the writing that made them some of the funniest films ever. Its not like it had a great story or anything, it'd be like remaking Ace Ventura without Jim Carrey, what's the point?

''belief held by John Landis and the Zuckers straight actors are funnier than cThere is a omedians on film. A sight gag or a line of dialogue gets a bigger laugh if the actor plays it with conviction. The straighter he plays it, the greater the laugh. As funny as the Naked Gun movies are, Leslie Nielsen was the glue that held it together. Nielsen, a classically trained dramatic actor, played Detective Frank Drebin as serious as he did from his leading man days.''

Ed Helms is going to make an awful Enrico Palazzo.

I think if this had been a sequel, this would have been better. Sadly, it would have been without Leslie Nielsen, but I would have loved to have seen a running gag on the show where Nordberg would start out being played by another black actor (via plastic surgery), only to switch black actors every time Nordberg is needed.

Helms being in the new Vacation movie didn't upset me as much because it was a sequel and he was going to play Rusty and not Clark.
