RIP: actor Jack Klugman, dead at 90

RIP: beloved "regular guy" actor Jack Klugman, dead at 90
He was Oscar, the messy member of the Odd Couple, and he was Quincy, the activist coroner.

The article sums up his appeal very well:

"Never anyone's idea of a matinee idol, Klugman remained a popular star for decades simply by playing the type of man you could imagine running into at a bar or riding on a subway with -- gruff, down to earth, his tie stained and a little loose, a racing form under his arm, a cigar in hand."
