    (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.

    I was wrong. Yemana and Dietrich did some shows together;

    He was very funny. I loved him on Barney Miller in the 70s. I also thought he was hysterical when he was on a few episodes of The Golden Girls, playing a psychiatrist trying to help Stan get over his feelings for Dorothy.

    RIP

    I adored his character -- he was my ideal fantasy person with whom to be shipwrecked on a lush tropical island. RIP
