Actor Justin Long commented, “If there is a way to access Instagram in the hereafter, I feel like Leslie is checking these messages and being “tickled” by them. I remember once referring to people following him on here as “followers” and he corrected me, “I prefer to call them ‘friends’” he said. When I got to hang out w him in Chattanooga, I witnessed him treating the fans who’d approach him with such kindness and humor – the way you would a friend. His mirth and joy of life will always remain with me – as will his one-of-a-kind voice when I say the words “well” and “shit” in order 😌❤️.”
Leslie passed away on October 24th after suffering a “medical emergency” behind the wheel of his BMW. His cause of death was related to heart disease.
He lost control of his vehicle and smashed into the side of a building in Hollywood, California. Leslie was on his way to the set of “Call Me Kat” at the time of the crash.
His Instagram account continues to post photos and videos of the late actor to bring light and joy to his six-million followers.
