Born Goro Suzuki on October 28, 1917, the actor, singer, and comedian better known as Jack Soo performed in the stage and film versions of the groundbreaking musical, Flower Drum Song, and as Nick Yemana - a laid-back and wry detective in the situation comedy, The Barney Miller Show. The sit-com featured a running joke: Soo’s character made horrible coffee for the squad. When Soo passed away during his fifth season with the show, his fellow actors raised their mugs to honor their friend and colleague. Jack Soo died on January 11, 1979, at the age of 61.
