Did You Know?
[on why he decided to join the cast of Law & Order] Back in the early 60s my pal David Janssen
was doing The Fugitive
(1963). He used to come home eight, nine o'clock at night, having gotten up at five in the morning, have one drink and boom! He'd fall asleep on the couch and we'd carry him to bed. I told myself, 'I will never do an hour drama. It's just too hard.' But then, as you get older...
He has three grandchildren. Sarah Kate Orbach and Peter Orbach who are his oldest son Tony's kids and Aaron Orbach born in 2014 to his youngest son Chris Orbach and daughter-in-law Nicole.
Best known for his role as Detective Lennie Briscoe in Law & Order
(1990) (as well as several spin-offs)
