NEW YORK (AP) -- James Rebhorn, the prolific character actor in "Homeland," "Scent of a Woman" and "My Cousin Vinny," has died. He was 65.
Rebhorn's agent, Dianne Busch, said Sunday that the actor died Friday at his home in New Jersey. She declined to give details on the nature of his death.
In five decades of television and film work, Rebhorn amassed more than 100 credits, ranging from a shipping magnate in "The Talented Mr. Ripley" to the prosecutor in the series finale of "Seinfeld."
The lanky but piercing Rebhorn, raised a Lutheran in Indiana, often played astringent authorities, like the headmaster in "Scent of a Woman" and lawyers on "Boston Legal" and "The Practice."
On "Homeland," he played the father of CIA officer Carrie Mathison.
