Actor Jack Klugman Dead at 90

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 Coupleand the crime-fighting coroner in Quincy, M.E., died on Christmas Eve, his 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.

"He had a great life and he enjoyed every moment of it and he would encourage others to do the same," son Adam Klugman said.

    90. Hasn't been hungry in a loooong time.
    He didn't get cheated and while he didn't invent new hair for bald men, he made a lot of people smile.
    Never good, but not bad. Hope people say the same for me.

    I watched a lot of Quincey when I was a kid, and man, in retrospect, that was an awfully preachy show.

    Some of it was certainly worth bringing up, like that episode about Japanese internment camps. But some of it were phony, like the illiteracy crisis...
