Actor Jack Klugman, who made up the sloppy half of the popular "Odd Couple," has died.

Klugman, who also starred in the original film version of "12 Angry Men," died Monday at his home in Northridge, Calif.

Klugman won two Emmy awards for his portrayal of sloppy and careless New York sportswriter Oscar Madison. He went on to star in the television series Quincy, M.E., in which he played a medical examiner.

The other half of the Odd Couple, Tony Randall, who portrayed the finicky photographer Felix Unger, died in 2004 at the age of 84.

Klugman also performed in the original Broadway production of The Odd Couple as a replacement for Walter Matthau.
