News broke on Monday that actor James Rebhorn passed away at the age of 65 at his home in South Orange, New Jersey, according to The New York Times. Rebhorn was most recently in the hit Showtime series “Homeland.” Dianne Busch, Rebhorn’s agent, said that the cause of death was melanoma.

Rebhorn was a regular presence on television and in movies as a supporting actress. His career repertoire includes more than 50 films. Some of those include “Independence Day,” “Meet the Parents” and “My Cousin Vinny.”


“Homeland” is in its fourth season on Showtime. Rebhorn played Frank Mathison, father of C.I.A. agent Carrie Mathison.
