From The Hollywood Reporter: Miguel Ferrer, best known for starring as Owen Granger on NCIS: Los Angeles, died Thursday of cancer. He was 61. Ferrer, who appeared in numerous films and television shows throughout his career, passed peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends, according to CBS. "Today, NCIS: LOS ANGELES lost a beloved family member," showrunner R. Scott Gemmill said in a statement. "Miguel was a man of tremendous talent who had a powerful dramatic presence on screen, a wicked sense of humor, and a huge heart. Our thoughts go out to his wife Lori, his sons, and his entire family. He will be greatly missed." Ferrer was the son of actor Jose Ferrer and singer Rosemary Clooney, making him a cousin to George Clooney, who sent The Hollywood Reporter a statement on the loss of his family member: "Today history will mark giant changes in our world, and lost to most will be that on the same day Miguel Ferrer lost his battle to throat cancer. But not lost to his family. 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." Ferrer played Bob Morton, the man who came up with the idea for a robotic police officer, in the 1987 cult classic RoboCop. Other memorable roles include Dr. Garret Macy on TV's Crossing Jordan and Albert Rosenfield on Twin Peaks. The actor also had a number of notable voice roles over the course of his career, as he voiced characters in Mulan, Rio 2, Robot Chicken and more. How very sad! He was a brilliant character actor, often better than the material he was given.
