It was sad enough when he left the show, but now the loss is far greater: Jerry Orbach, a.k.a. Lennie Briscoe, has died.

He played the quintessential “jaded cop,” a wisecracking 12-year veteran for a landmark television series, in addition to stealing scenes on stage and on the big screen. He was all set to star in yet another Law & Order spinoff. Instead, the TV universe is now a little smaller.

See ya, Lennie.  [Via Greg]
