A dead body that was found floating in the Mississippi River has been identified as that of an actor who appeared recently on the HBO drama “Treme,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
Actor Michael Showers, who played a recurring role as Capt. John Guidry in the New Orleans-based HBO show, was 45. No cause of death has been reported.
Showers played small roles in a number of movies and also made guest appearances on TV in “Breaking Bad” and “The Vampire Diaries.” He appears in the new movie “Colombiana” and had roles in “Traffic” and Jim Carrey’s “I Love You Phillip Morris,” among other films.
Showers’ girlfriend reportedly told authorities that he went out for a drink Tuesday and never returned home.
