Peter Falk

Well, to make a long story short, Peter Falk was Jewish!

Since Peter Falk's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Peter Falk (who's full birth name was Peter Michael Falk) was born on September 16, 1927 in New York City, United States.

He is best known for his role as Lt. Columbo in the television series Columbo. He appeared in numerous films such as The Princess Bride, The Great Race, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, A Woman Under the Influence and Murder by Death. He was nominated for an Academy Award twice (for 1960's Murder, Inc. and 1961's Pocketful of Miracles), and won the Emmy Award on five occasions (four for Columbo) and the Golden Globe Award once.
