He was in many many films and won lots of awards for his work in film and television. He was best known for playing the title character on NBC’s “Columbo.” I remember the show quite fondly but for some reason he sticks in my head most fondly as mob boss Max in 2001′s Made. “Because you lost my carpet cleaning van… and I don’t like you you cocksucker!”
So yes, the guy was pretty much always quirkily awesome (before quirk was a bad thing). We’ll miss that cross-eyed smirk and that hidden sense of cunning his characters always seemed to embody. Thanks for the happy years, sir. You will be missed!
