RIP Jack Klugman

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.

Klugman, who lost his voice to throat cancer in the 1980s and trained himself to speak again, died with his wife, Peggy, at his side. He was 90.

I'm a bit too young to have enjoyed The Odd Couple on TV but I loved Qunicy M.E. What's your favorite Klugman role?
