Jerry Orbach, 1935-2004
Devastating news: the AP reports veteran actor Jerry Orbach passed away Tuesday Night from prostate cancer. He was 69.
Orbach had just started production on the new Law & Order: Trial By Jury, which is scheduled to premiere this spring.
As a huge Briscoe fan, this news saddens me greatly. It was bad enough losing him earlier this year on Law & Order, but at least we had the new spinoff to look forward to. Now, all we have are memories- and, thankfully, endless L&O reruns on TNT.
He will be missed.
