Joe Mantegna Accepts Peter Falk’s Posthumous Walk of Fame Star
Joe, a longtime friend of late Peter Falk, was quite moved at the do. He related how Peter was never fond of public recognition and would have been peeved at having to come to a ceremony to accept the accolade.

Peter, who passed away in 2011, was actually awarded the star way back in 1991 but, as Joe pointed out, his reluctance to be involved in a ceremony of any kind meant that his star had to wait until after he died before it took its rightful place on the Walk of Fame, right near his old friend Joe’s and veteran actor Errol Flynn’s.
He is only the 2503rd recipient of the prestigious star. Peter was mainly known for his role as detective Colombo on Prescription: Murder which was so successful that it won him four Emmys.
