Steve Landesberg, who played Detective Arthur Dietrich, died of colon cancer on December 20, 2010. Although many sources stated that he was 65 at the time of his death, his daughter revealed that he was actually 74. He had fudged on his age to appeal to a younger generation. You pulled one last one over on us, eh, DD?
Easily my all-time favorite TV character - the know-it-all who actually DID know it all - expert on any and every obscure topic from quantum physics to the occult. If Stephen Hawking had gotten arrested for jaywalking Dietrich would have straightened out his thinking on string theory and upgraded his wheelchair to talk with a Frank Sinatra voice.
