Richard Belzer, known affectionately as “the Belz,” has been playing the unforgettable role of conspiracy-theorist detective John Munch for 13 seasons in the hit NBC show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. In fact, Belzer has played “John Munch” on a record-setting 11 different television series for 20 consecutive years–including Homicide, Law & Order, The X-Files, Sesame Street, The Wire, Arrested Development and 30 Rock. But of course “the Belz” is also a veteran stand-up comic, starring first in the cult, counter-cultural classic The Groove Tube, and going on to appear off-Broadway on The National Lampoon Show with Bill Murray, Gilda Radner and John Belushi and in a series of films, as well in his own comedy specials, including HBO’s Another Lone Nut. He is also an author of two novels and other non-fiction books.
In his new book, DEAD WRONG: Straight Facts on the Country’s Most Controversial Cover-Ups, Richard Belzer and his co-author, investigative journalist David Wayne, marshal a host of up-to-date scientific and forensic evidence, all referenced, to argue that the U.S. government has faked the suicides or mysterious deaths of politicians, celebrities and government figures – including Marilyn Monroe, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and others.
