Peter Falk, TV's Lt. Columbo, Has Died

Peter Falk as Columbo

Peter Falk, the actor who played the iconic role of LAPD homicide detective Columbo on television over a span of 35 years, has died. He was 83.

Though he'll probably be best remembered as the cop in a rumpled jacket, whose signature line was "Just one more thing ..." — indeed, his 2006 autobiography was titled just that — his body of work over nearly five decades spans television, film, and the stage, comedy and drama.

For a good summary of the actor's wide-ranging career, see this article in the New York Times.
