Jerry Orbach

Jerry Orbach, best known as Detective Lennie Briscoe on Law & Order, has died of prostate cancer at the age of 69.

But that was not his only role. From Mack the Knife in The Threepenny Opera to El Gallo in The Fantasticks to winning the Tony for Best Actor in Promises, Promises, plus numerous other roles on stage and screen, he was the consummate actor; able to do everything, and do it with class and style.

Grace be unto you, and peace, Jerry.
