Law & Order star Jerry Orbach 12/28/04
Well Law & Order star Jerry Orbach passed away today from prostate cancer. You may know Jerry as the dad from Dirty Dancing or the voice of the candle in Beauty & the Beast. The best thing to come out of Dirty Dancing, besides Patrick Swayze's short lived singing career admit it you loved that song "She's Like the Wind", was one of my favorite movie lines of all time, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." But I digress back the the Jerry Orbach talk. Jerry was actually working on another Dick Wolf show, I said that to say this, is there a show on NBC that Dick Wolf isn't involved in? The guy has shows all over the place from one meger little seed and has to be making big money from the syndication on TNT for all of them. Mr Wolf for my sanity please stop making shows I can't take another Dick Wolf show on TV. My mom is a HUGE fan of all those Dick Wolf shows, if its on TV she'll watch it. For arguements sake lets see how many I can name:
Law & Order
Law & Order: Criminal Intent
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Law & Order: Peter Francis Geraci
Law & Order: Slip and Fall Attorneys
Law & Order: Jackie Childs <-----hey I'd watch this one I think that may be all of them Okay now I feel better and on to the CITW for Jerry Orbach. Vigil same time and same place as usual. You can see all the low carb CITW versions by clicking here. Have a Happy New Year folks until the next celebrity gets cancelled, I'm out.
Goodbye Jerry Orbach
My mom knew your shows pretty well
You had the grit to act a cop
Put Baby in a corner history tells
You crawled out of Brooklyn
Tony Award in your hand
Did the voice of a candle
Look a new Dick Wolf show again!
And it seemed to me you lived your life
Like Lumiere in the wind
Never knowing Baby's friend was pregnant
You go out an help out again
And I would have liked to know you
But I was just a kid
Your Lumiere burned out long before
All those damn Dick Wolf shows ever did.
