Peter Falk and Kermit the Frog

Peter Falk (b. 1927) is an actor best known for playing the eponymous detective Lt. Columbo on the TV series Columbo and in numerous TV movies. In 1979, he appeared as himself in the TV special The Muppets Go Hollywood, trading jests about the food with Fozzie Bear. Two years later, he made an unbilled cameo in The Great Muppet Caper as the bum on the park bench, valiantly attempting to predict what Kermit's life story is. Falk's gravelly voiced portrayal of Columbo was also the inspiration of the Sesame Street character Colambo.

Falk's film credits include The Princess Bride (with Mandy Patinkin), Robin and the Seven Hoods (with Frank Sinatra), The Great Race, and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (as a cab driver, opposite Jonathan Winters, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, and countless others). In 2006, he published a memoir, Just One More Thing.
