Happy birthday, Lt. Castillo!

Now, and forever, The Man.

Edward James Olmos, who turns 74 today, has enjoyed a distinguished career.

From Stand and Deliver to Blade Runner and Battlestar Galactica, he is rock-solid, all day.

But one role, for me at least, towers above the rest.

Miami Vice is part of my personal TV Hall of Fame, and right there in the midst of the glitz and glamour, the sleek fashion and the thumping music, was Martin Castillo, the heart of the show.

Crockett and Tubbs were the stars, but the man with the mustache gave everything gravitas.

Happy birthday, Lieutenant, my Lieutenant!
