TV & stage's Orbach dead

An Actor's Actor

Elephant is a big fan of TV's Law & Order franchise (except for the Criminal Intent version). I became hooked during law school when I realized a lot of the court room banter was, surprisingly accurate. But what keeps me coming back is the shear joy of watching some of the best character acting on television. Each week producers fill the show with gritty, believable characters to play the villains, victims and bystanders. That's why I was sad to hear that L&O star Jerry Orbach passed away yesterday. For over then years he was the heart of the show.
Not to mention his role in "Dirty Dancing" and voicing Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast.
