I’d really hoped that 2017 would start fresh with some joy and happiness, but no such luck. Yesterday, actor Miguel Ferrer, passed away from throat cancer.
He was one of my favorites and if you’re not sure who he is, you’d probably, at least, recognize him. He was in everything including Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Robocop, guest appearances in CHiPs, Magnum, P.I., and my personal favorite, Twin Peaks. As FBI Agent, Albert Rosenthal, he stole the show.
In the later part of his career, Ferrer was a series regular on Crossing Jordan and NCIS: LA.
His cousin, George Clooney, had these lovely words to say:
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.
Luckily for us, he will be in the Twin Peaks revival as Albert Rosenthal.
RIP, Miguel Ferrer
