BREAKING NEWS: ACTOR ORBACH DIES
Jerry Orbach died today at the age of 69. Although he was also an accomplished, Tony-winning Broadway actor (for Promises, Promises), Orbach, whose cult status was elevated with his portrayal of Dr. Houseman, the father who "put Baby in the corner" in Dirty Dancing, was best known for his role as Lenny Briscoe on 12 seasons of the original Law & Order.
Born in the Bronx, Orbach had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in early December.
