A Tribute to Nordberg From The Naked Gun


Since the death of Leslie Nielson, I’ve been getting my fix of The Naked Gun films, only to rediscover the pure genius in comedic acting by the fella who played Officer Nordberg.

Treat yourself the wonders of The Naked Gun on Amazon.

Note that this is not the same character as Officer Norberg (without the d) from Police Squad! because that was a white guy named Peter Lupus. Lupus. Ha ha.
