Goodbye Jerry

Jerry Orbach 1935 – 2004

Jerry Orbach died yesterday of prostate cancer at age 69. He starred as Detective Lennie Briscoe in Law & Order, one of my favorite TV shows. He convincingly played the real New Yorker he actually was. I’m saddened by his loss, even though I only knew him through his body of work.

Peace be with you, Jerry.

    Jerry as Lennie Briscoe has been one of our favorites for years. We missed him when he left the show, then got all exited when we heard he was doing a new Law & Order show for next season. Very sad news. -Chino Wayne
