Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner

How sad is it that actor Jerry Orbach has passed away? Of course what else would this be but sad, as death is rarely, if ever, a happy occasion. Perhaps in the movies. Or in video games. But surely not in real life.

Jerry Orbach was amazing because so many people knew him, yet so few people KNEW they knew him... if you know what I mean. The man, remarkably, was only 69. That means when he made Dirty Dancing he was probably only 50 or so. This segues into another great "talent" of Orbach's; the ability to look the same age for nearly his entire life.

One look at his credits on IMDB will tell you the man got around, but in a good way. Most people know him for his most recent, and frequent role on Law & Order. Not as many people know he had a long standing career on Broadway. But no matter what, I will forever remember him as Jake "I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong" Houseman from Dirty Dancing.

Farewell, Mr. Orbach. You will be missed.
