Peter Falk

The late actor (with Viktor Korchnoi, Pasadena 1983) was a strong amateur chess player. There are a couple more pictures here, including one in which he looks like his most famous character, Lt. Columbo. (The plot of one episode of Columbo was inspired by the Fischer-Spassky match.)

Pasadena is of course where the famous Kasparov-Korchnoi match was played, and where Bobby Fischer lived in seculsion for many years.
