Rip Torn Dead - Legendary Actor Dies at 88 | RIP, Rip Torn

Rip Torn Dies

Following his success on the show, Torn was cast in several movies including 1997's "Men in Black", starring opposite Will Smith who posted a tribute to the fallen star Tuesday.

His representatives have released a statement saying: "Rip Torn, one of the leading stage actors of his generation and an Emmy Award-winner for his portrayal of the deliciously devious producer Artie on HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show", has died".

Torn died Tuesday at his home in Lakeville, Connecticut with his family by his side, Miramontez said. No cause of death was given, according to The Associated Press.

Torn has been a constant presence on stage and screen since the mid-1950s and he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1984 for his role in Martin Ritt's Cross Creek. Torn finally won an Emmy for his work on the show in 1996.

And the Academy Award-winning winning actress Estelle Parsons remembered Arthur Penn saying, "Rip starts where every other actor finished up". Sharing a still from the Men in Black franchise, Will simply wrote, "R.I.P. Rip".

That reputation for irascibility would follow Torn through the rest of his career, but while he never achieved Nicholson's level of fame, he remained prolific as a character actor throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

Torn is survived by his wife and their two children, Katy and Claire, as well as daughter Danae, from his first marriage to Ann Wedgeworth, as well as daughter Angelica, and sons Tony and Jon, from his second marriage to Geraldine Page.
