rip Quincy Actor Jack Klugman Dies Aged 90

12 posts in this topic

Actor Jack Klugman, who starred in TV's The Odd Couple and Quincy, M.E. has died at the age of 90.

His son said he passed away on Monday afternoon in Los Angeles.

In the 1970s sitcom The Odd Couple, Klugman played sloppy sports writer Oscar to co-star Tony Randall's Felix, a fussy photographer

In Quincy, M.E., which aired from 1976 to 1983, Klugman played an idealistic, tough-minded medical examiner.

He lost his voice to throat cancer in the 1980s but trained himself to speak again.

He returned to acting in a 1993 Broadway revival of Three Men On A Horse.

Klugman then split his time between TV, movies and the New York stage.

I still remember Jack Klugman as Quincy...I loved that intro:

As Quincy stands behind a sheet-covered table, with five cop trainees on the other side:

"Gentlemen...you are about to enter the most fascinating field of police work. The world of forensic medicine." He pulled the sheet off the table, and BAM!! Just like that, two of the trainee cops hit the floor. As he prepped his instruments, the rest of the trainees hit the floor, so that by the time he was ready to work, there was nobody watching...they were all unconscious!!
