* In the TheSixties and TheSeventies, Jerry Orbach was a famous Broadway star. He was in the inaugural cast of ''Theatre/TheFantasticks'', he was the first Billy Flynn in ''Theatre/{{Chicago}}'', and he even got a few movie roles. Fast forward thirty years, and what is he best known for? Lennie Briscoe on ''Series/LawAndOrder''. If anyone even knows he could sing, they probably know it because they saw him as Lumiere in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.
