I have always been interested in Peter Falk. What happened to him?

—Jennie L., Connecticut

He’s been acting, most recently providing the voice of Don Feinberg for the upcoming animated film Shark Tale. In the last few years, he’s appeared in the films Corky Romano and Made, the TV movies A Town Without Christmas and The Sunshine Boys and, yes, even a couple of Columbo TV-movie specials. A native New Yorker, Falk was working as an efficiency expert for the Budget Bureau of Connecticut when he got interested in acting. Starting his professional career on Broadway, he easily moved on to television and films, with Columbo earning him household-name status as well as three Emmy awards.
