William Smith (Ken Nichols in "The Greenhouse Jungle")

I hate to be the first one to bring up one of THESE stories, but evidently we lost him just two days ago.
(I don't have a link for it, but the story should be easy to find.)

Yes, I saw this sad news. It's partly why I posted the article about Larry Storch - nice to see something about one of our Columbo characters while they're still alive. Anyway, here's a link: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/11/arts/television/william-smith-dead.html

I always like the moment where he offers to hide in the back seat while Uncle Jarvis makes the ransom payoff.

Maybe you aren't supposed to like "gigolo" characters, but I can never help liking Ken, and William Smith really seems to slip right into the role.
