Jack Klugman was a staple of TV from the 1950's to the 1980's, appearing in countless guest appearances like The Twilight Zone, The Naked City, Gunsmoke, Alfred Hitchock Presents and many other tv shows.

He is most famous for the Odd Couple and Quincy TV shows.

As well he was the last surviving cast member of The Twelve Angry Men. And many other film roles.

Jack Klugman was a good man and actor .. he had a dry sense of humor in his interviews and played a wide variety of roles well .. RIP .. I shall think of you, Jack, each time I hum the Odd Couple theme, which I do sometimes when exerting physical energy ..

RIP Oscar.

With all his health issues I'm surprised he lived as long as he did.
I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

RIP....Mr. Jack Klugman...RIP...

One of my high school friends just posted the following on his FB:

"Sad to hear of the passing of actor Jack Klugman. He and his son David gave me my first job working for them when I moved to L.A. in 1983. Mr. Klugman was a very nice man and treated me very nicely."


McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]

Ok in his honour...take a bag of potato chips open it and spread it over the table and start eating.

I still laugh at that.

He also was in one my favorite Twilight Zone episodes:
