One Of Hollywood’s Best Character Actors Loses Battle With Cancer

ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT / YOUTUBE

Miguel Ferrer’s health had been deteriorating for a while, but that hadn’t stopped him from keeping his acting calendar full. The 61-year-old actor was a regular on “NCIS: Los Angeles” and was slated to reprise his brilliant role of Albert Rosenfield in the upcoming “Twin Peaks” revival. Unfortunately for fans and fellow actors, Miguel Ferrer finally succumbed to his battle with throat cancer.

George Clooney, Miguel Ferrer’s cousin, released a statement, summing up what many people are feeling: “Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will.”

Throughout his life, Miguel Ferrer had the kind of Hollywood career that very few stars could hope to have.


Miguel was born into a family of some of show biz’s most famous names. His father, José Ferrer, was a Puerto Rican Oscar-winning actor, and his mother was the legendary singer Rosemary Clooney. Where some people would feel the weight of living under the shadow of their parent’s success, Ferrer thrived, turning in some of Hollywood’s most standout performances.

His role as Bob Morton in “RoboCop,” as many will remember, was the perfect encapsulation of smarmy ’80s excess, a role that no one could have played better.

Ferrer was one of the greats and will be missed.
