James Rebhorn, the prolific character actor in Homeland, Scent of a Woman, and My Cousin Vinny, has died. He was 65.
Rebhorn’s agent, Dianne Busch, said Sunday that the actor died Friday at his home in South Orange, N.J. She confirmed to EW that the cause of death was melanoma. He was diagnosed with the disease in 1992 and had been fighting it since. Rebhorn had been receiving hospice care for the last week and a half, Busch told EW, and his family — wife Rebecca and their two daughters, Emma and Hannah — were with him.
In five decades of television and film work, Rebhorn amassed more than 100 credits, ranging from a shipping magnate in The Talented Mr. Ripley to the prosecutor in the series finale of Seinfeld, in which he famously sent the group to jail.
