Actor James Rebhorn who plays Claire Danes father on the show Homeland has passed away.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the 65-year-old actor died on Friday at his home.

Rebhorn’s agent, Dianne Busch, released a statement to E! Online regarding his death.

"He had been at home receiving hospice care for the last two weeks. His family was with him. He will be greatly missed," said Busch.

Rebhorn has been in the acting business for over five decades. He has been featured in an array of television shows, films, and on stage productions. Two of his most notable performances are from USA’s White Collar as he plays the role of Special Agent Reese Hughes and on Seinfeld where he portrayed the role of a district attorney.
