Jack Klugman RIP

Now this is one guy I’m gonna miss….

LOS ANGELES — Jack Klugman, the prolific, craggy-faced character actor and regular guy who was loved by millions as the messy one in TV’s “The Odd Couple” and the crime-fighting coroner in “Quincy, M.E.,” died Monday, a son said. He was 90.
Klugman, who lost his voice to throat cancer in the 1980s and trained himself to speak again, died with his wife at his side.
“He had a great life and he enjoyed every moment of it and he would encourage others to do the same,” son Adam Klugman said.
Adam Klugman said he was spending Christmas with his brother, David, and their families. Their father had been convalescing for some time but had apparently died suddenly and they were not sure of the exact cause.

He’s definitely played both sides of the coin in his leading major TV roles. Considering that Sir Christopher Lee is also 90, it makes me wonder….
Rest In Peace, Jack.

    I’ll never forget the title sequence in ‘Quincey’, where he introduces a bunch of young cops to ‘the fascinating world of forensic medicine’, and the whole row of ‘em passes out one by one.

    One of the greats.

    RIP.
