    Default RIP Peter Falk



    (CBS) A family spokesman confirmed to CBS News that actor Peter Falk died in Los Angeles Thursday night. He was 83.

    The "Columbo" star won four Emmy Awards for his portrayal of the cigar-chomping detective who always looked as if he'd just rolled out of bed. Falk played Columbo on television regularly from 1971 to 1978 and then sporadically from 1989 until 2003. He won his first Emmy in 1962 for outstanding single performance by an actor in a leading role for an episode of "The Dick Powell Theatre" (1961).

    Falk also had starring roles in his friend John Cassavetes' films "Husbands" and "A Woman Under the Influence" and starred with Cassavetes in Elaine May's 1976 film "Mikey and Nicky." He was nominated twice for the best supporting actor Oscar, for "Murder, Inc." and "Pocketful of Miracles."

    In recent years, Falk suffered from Alzheimer's disease. In 2009, he was placed in a conservatorship. He is survived by his wife, Shera, of 34 years, and two daughters from a previous marriage.

    Sad news indeed. A great actor whose work I always enjoyed, Columbo and beyond. I didn't know he had Alzheimer's, after this week with the Glen Campbell announcement of him having it really strikes home with me. My own Mom has it and it withering away from it so this does strike a all-too familiar chord with me. RIP Mr. Falk.

    Never watched much Columbo, but he cracked me up in that movie Murder by Death.

    The In-Laws with Alan Arkin is one of my all time favorite movies, Falk and Arkin together were priceless.

    RIP Mr. Falk, my dad thought you, Archie Bunker and Fred Sanford were the shit, back in the day... never missed an episode of any of you.

    Never knew he had a glass eye since he was around 3 years old (right side). He did have a sort of squint about him. RIP. Alzheimers sucks.
