Okay, maybe I’m the last person on the planet to discover this (and, if so, I’m okay with that)… I just found out that my beloved Jerry Orbach, Detective Lenny Briscoe of Law and Order fame, moonlighted as Lumiere, the candlablra of Beauty and the Beast fame.
Going back and listening to Lumiere I can totally hear Lenny. Why did I never know this before? I know that Jerry has a life outside of L&O… He played the Dad in Dirty Dancing and has been in several Broadway musicals and plays. I just never knew he sang “Be Our Guest” in a great French accent. My life will be forever changed for the better.
