Link (CNN) -- Steve Landesberg, best known for his role as a cerebral detective on the TV sitcom "Barney Miller," has died of cancer, his agent said. He was 65. "Steve was a true 'Gentleman,' " Landesberg's agent Jeffrey Leavitt said late Monday, shortly after the actor's death. "Working with Steve was an honor both personally and professionally. ... He will be missed."... IIRC, his character replaced Jack Soo's after Soo died. I liked Nick Yamana as a character better but Landesberg was funny too. This is also from the article; He is credited with the quote "Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is a better defense," according to WorldofQuotes.com. Too true.
