    Steve Landesberg has died today at the age of 65, after a long battle with cancer.

    I just saw a rerun of Barney Miller last night, and was reminded of how brilliant he was at that quiet, dry wit.

    RIP, Steve, you will be missed.

    Aww. He once did a piece about discovering there are Jews outside of NYC. So funny. Z”l, Steve.

    Oh, I loved him on Barney Miller! And I read the NY Times article on this, he was actually 74 years old. His daughter said he liked to fool people about his age and often gave multiple birth dates. I loved his deadpan style of comedy. RIP, Steve.
