Rest in Peace: Peter Falk

RIP Peter FalkAnother Hollywood legend has left us behind to pursue, we're sure, much better things on the other side. Still, we're sad to see him go, but wow, does he have a legacy to share.

According to THR Peter Falk, who won four Emmys for his portrayal of the rumpled TV detective "Columbo" as well as Oscar nominations for his first two films, Murder, Inc. and Frank Capra's last film A Pocketful of Miracles, died Thursday in Beverly Hills. He was 83.

Though he no doubt solved lots of ghastly murders in his television days, he's only officially dabbled in our genre three times on the small screen, twice for Alfred Hitchcock and once for "The Twilight Zone".

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Peter's friends, family, and constituents. Godspeed, sir. We hope they have a huge selection of Cuban cigars waiting for you wherever you are.

What better things? There's not much to do on the other side of a coffin aside from training worms to do circus tricks.
