Jerry Orbach dead at 69
Actor best known for 'Law & Order'

Wednesday, December 29, 2004 Posted: 10:39 AM EST (1539 GMT)

NEW YORK (AP) -- "Law & Order" star Jerry Orbach has died of prostate cancer at 69, a representative of the show said Wednesday.

Orbach died Tuesday night in Manhattan after several weeks of treatment, Audrey Davis of the public relations agency Lippin Group said.

When his illness was diagnosed, he had begun production on NBC's upcoming spinoff "Law & Order: Trial By Jury," after 12 seasons playing Detective Lennie Briscoe in the original series. His return to the new show had been expected early next year.

On Broadway, the Bronx-born Orbach starred in hit musicals including "Carnival," "Promises, Promises" (for which he won a Tony Award), "Chicago" and "42nd Street."

Among his film appearances were roles in "Dirty Dancing," "Prince of the City" and "Crimes and Misdemeanors."

He was also the voice of Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast.

And he was Baby's dad in Dirty Dancing, one of my favorite movies EVER.

I loved Mr. Orbach as Lennie Briscoe on "Law and Order." He was also a fine, award-winning Broadway performer. He'll be missed.

Jerry Orbach has died.

I loved his character on L&O.

Awful news.
I'd seen something about him recently that hinted he was doing well and would be back working soon. What a shame.
