RIP Richard Belzer

When an actor is hired to play a role that is iconic, they have the acting jackpot. When that character is extended to multiple IPs, they have reached a pinnacle that many can only dream of getting close to.

The actor and comedian Richard Belzer passed away on Sunday. Born to a Jewish family in Connecticut, he is best known for playing Detective John Munch in Homicide: Life on the Street (1993 to 1999) and in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit (1999 to Present).

Munch is a skeptic and sarcastic. He doesn’t quite fall into the category of 100% believing conspiracy theories. But, he does ask questions, even if they sound a little farfetched. He also had a heart and put everything he could into solving the case.

He will be missed, as an actor and a human being. May his memory be a blessing. Z”l.

P.S. His comedy is pure genius.
