Miguel Ferrer has passed away

Miguel Ferrer, who played Bob Morton in RoboCop and FBI Agent Albert Rosenfeld on Twin Peaks, died today of cancer. He was 61.

He was the son of Oscar-winning actor Jose Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney, and cousin of George Clooney. He also voiced the antagonistic Hun leader Shan Yu in Mulan (1998) and Big Boss in Rio 2. Ferrer’s other notable roles include Dr. Garret Macy on Crossing Jordan, NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger on NCIS: Los Angeles, Vice President Rodriguez in Iron Man 3 and he returned for David Lynch’s new series of Twin Peaks.

Ferrer began his career in the early 1980s making guest appearances on episodic television. He played the younger self of his father’s character on Magnum P.I in 1981. In 1983, he was given a small part as a waiter in The Man Who Wasn’t There. He also had a small part in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) as the Excelsior helm officer. Ferrer’s notable roles include a sinister biker in Valentino Returns, an overzealous engineer in DeepStar Six, a resourceful vigilante in Revenge, Commander Arvid Harbinger in the comedy Hot Shots! Part Deux, Lloyd Henreid in the Stephen King miniseries The Stand, and a drug informant in Traffic. He has occasionally taken on lead parts, as well, such as The Harvest and The Night Flier.

He had recently signed up to join the voice cast of the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract animated movie as Deathstroke and had apparently finished work on it.

Ferrer is survived by his wife Lori, sons Lukas and Rafi and his brothers and sisters.

He was awesome and will be missed.

  1. That’s sad, he’s one of those actors you realise has been with you your whole life. He was always great in anything I watched him in!
