Jack Klugman Dies at 90

Legendary actor Jack Klugman is being remembered today. He died on Christmas Eve in Los Angeles at the age of 90.

Klugman is best known for playing Oscar to Tony Randall's Felix in The Odd Couple during the 1970s. It was a story of two divorced men living together in New York City. 

INSIDE EDITION found the exact spot where Oscar threw his cigar on the sidewalk in the opening credits of The Odd Couple. As the instantly recognizable theme music played, neat freak Felix showed his displeasure and a little bit of his character with one stab of an umbrella.

People in the building seem to like their connection to the classic sitcom.  

And fans who live in the building expressed their sadness at Klugman's passing with this written memorial in the lobby.  

After The Odd Couple, Klugman spent six years playing a medical examiner on the successful drama series Quincy M.E.
