(Jacob Joachim Klugman)
* 27. April 1922 (in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)    † 24. December 2012 (in Northridge, California)


one of my top favourite actors ever

I like him most as Oscar Madison on the TV hit series 'The Odd Couple' (1970 - 1975), as Juror # 5 in '12 Angry Men' (1957), and as Dr. R. Quincy on the TV hit series 'Quincy, M. E.'

he was married to Peggy Crosby from 02. February 2008 until his death

had two sons from his first marriage, David (* 1959) and Adam (* 1963)

he was formerly married to actress Brett Somers since (1956 - 2007, divorced...they were separated since 1974)

Brett Somers played Blanche on the TV hit series 'The Odd Couple', Oscar Madisons ex-wife

in 1989, he had to undergo surgery for throat cancer, and for a few years after he was unable to talk - later, he was able to speak, but only in a rough-sounding whisper
