It's time to try defying gravity

Jerry Orbach of 'Law & Order' Dies at 69

NEW YORK - Jerry Orbach had a gift for charming audiences his entire career first as a song-and-dance man who starred in musicals on and off Broadway, then for 12 years as a sharp-tongued cop on TV's "Law & Order."

Along the way, he made films as varied as the gritty crime drama "Prince of the City" and the smash romance "Dirty Dancing."

Orbach, who died of prostate cancer Tuesday in Manhattan, was beginning another chapter at age 69: He had taken his signature role as Detective Lennie Briscoe to NBC's upcoming spinoff "Law & Order: Trial By Jury."

With his hangdog puss and loose-limbed gait, Orbach was unmatched at playing the street-smart tough guy. A quintessential New Yorker, he personified his city's well-worn but implacable edge, embodying the Big Apple like few other actors.

Wow, Chrebet - that's awesome. I knew the names (sort of) but what a wonderful run-down of the actors who played characters in one of my favorites.

Benjamin Bratt in the Vanity Fair article said people who like Law & Order are groupies. I tend to agree.

And Jeandiata, thank you for sharing that bit about Lenny (the always loveable lug )Jerry Orbach who will be missed. When I heard he was leaving the show, I already missed him. Had no idea he was so terribly ill.

I have loved the show for years, and has driven my daugher to want to be a lawyer. Our big question is, what makes the sound that we here between scenes? Anybody know for sure....Thanks.

I found this on imdb.

The distinctive "thunk-thunk" sound effect used in between scenes was created by combining close to a dozen sounds, including that of a group of monks stamping on a floor.

Joseph Rodriguez, I have a sneaking suspicion that Fontana is into something else on the side, which explains his extravagant clothing and his $110,000 Mercedes SL500.

The term "LUDs", or something that sounds like that, is often used on the show to denote telephone records. Maybe it's an acronym. Does anyone know the exact term and its definition?

LUDs stands for "Local Usage Detail"

Can anyone tell me the name of the law & Order episode that a married black man died during a game night. These men would meet for game night but were actually gay men on the downlow. The dead man's wife did not know he was gay and taled about how she keep herself up to get him from leaving her for another women never knowing he was actually gay. Everyone keeps talking about this episode but I have never seen it. I am sure it was originally aired before 2002.

thanks for your help
