Jack Klugman, Actor of Everyman Integrity, Dies at 90

Published: December 24, 2012

Jack Klugman, the rubber-mugged character actor who leapt to television stardom in the 1970s as the slovenly sportswriter Oscar Madison on “The Odd Couple” and as the crusading forensic pathologist of “Quincy, M.E.,” died on Monday at his home in the Woodland Hills section of Los Angeles. He was 90.

Never really watched anything he did, I think growing up my mother used to watch Quincy reruns. Seemed like a good actor and good person from everything I have been reading since his passing.

I do remember an episode of Space Ghost on Adult Swim though, Brak was obsessed with Jack KLUG-MAN for some reason. It was funny.

I'll remember him for 12 Angry Men; I never watched "The Odd Couple" TV show (just the movie).

I still stop whenever I see 12 Angry Men when I see it on any channel. He's a standout in that role among his more famous peers. The Odd Couple was a fun show, but Quincy was better. He's one of those guys who can't be replaced. RIP
