Telly Savalas (January 21, 1924 - January 22, 1994)
Born Aristotle Savalas in Garden City, New York. Died in 1994 of prostate cancer.

Godfather of Jennifer Aniston, Telly is best remembered as Lt. Theo Kojak from the TV show Kojak. He also was in a number of movies, including Birdman of Alcatraz, for which he received a Best Supporting Actor nomination.

Being younger, I remember seeing Telly in commercials for The Players Club, a credit card for Vegas swingers.
