Glaser, now 80 years old, struggles to come to terms with the loss, reminiscing about their playful banter and shared camaraderie.
He extends heartfelt condolences to David’s wife, Helen, whom David adored, and to his sons and daughter. Glaser is touched by the outpouring of support from fans who recognized the special connection between him and David during their time on the show.
The duo’s friendship endured beyond their time on screen, with talks in 2023 of rebooting Starsky & Hutch with female leads.
