This is sad news. Columbo is one of my favorite shows of all-time and I just recently began to watch a few of the old ones on Netflix. Columbo always got his man but not before convincing everyone that he was an absent-minded bumbling fool. He would always figure out the crime but due to the lack of any corroborating evidence, he'd set the suspect up in such a way as to show his guilt. Peter Falk played him perfectly, and actually some of his work as Columbo was complete improv on his part.

"Just one more thing."

Hey, the other character in this clip looks exactly like the guy Mel Gibson is looking for in _Forever Young_. Wonder if it's the same actor.

You are correct, Anon. That's George Wendt, and he was in "Forever Young." But he's most famous for his role on the show "Cheers."
