LOS ANGELES Jack Klugman, the prolific, craggy-faced character actor and regular guy who was loved by millions as the messy one in TV's "The Odd Couple" and the crime-fighting coroner in "Quincy, M.E.," died Monday, a son said. He was 90.

Klugman, who lost his voice to throat cancer in the 1980s and trained himself to speak again, died with his wife at his side.



Funny, the first thing I thought about when I saw the headline was Quincy, and actually had to be reminded that he was Oscar Madison on The Odd Couple. Though the latter was closer to the rumpled, blue-collar types he had been playing since at least as far back as 12 Angry Men.

I don't know if I ever saw him in anything else besides those three offerings. I went through a period in junior-high of watching Quincy regularly, for some reason, and consider myself fortunate to have witnnessed the first screening of that unintentionally hilarious exercise in social relevance, Quincy Takes On Punk Rock...

That's a crock, man! You think we're all zombie killers!!

Check out the punk's make-up job at 2:27.

But not to focus too much on the kitsch, I will also enter into the record a clip from 12 Angry Men...

Juror #5 explains switchblades.

Overall, a pretty decent actor. RIP.
