farewell, jerry orbach

December 29, 2004



jerry orbach died today of prostate cancer, which he’d been battling since earlier this year. orbach, as lennie briscoe, was an amazing fixture (so much more than an actor) on law & order, one of my favorite shows (as many of you know). gothamist has an excellent post, so i’ll just send you over there instead of copying the links… and if you haven’t had a chance to watch him in action, flip on TNT for syndicated episodes – they’re on every night.
