Actor Miguel Ferrer, whose long run as Owen Granger on the CBS procedural “NCIS: Los Angeles” capped off a long and distinguished career on TV and in feature films, has died. Variety reports that Ferrer died Thursday of throat cancer. He was 61.
Ferrer, who played FBI Agent Albert Rosenfeld on ABC’s original “Twin Peaks” in 1990-1991, will reportedly be a part of the new Showtime revival of the series. Before surfacing on “NCIS: L.A.” in 2012, he had a long run on “Crossing Jordan” from 2001-2007, among many TV roles.
His work in feature films includes roles in “RoboCop,” “Traffic,” “Hot Shots! Part Deux,” “Justice League of America” and many others.
He was a part of David Lynch’s short-lived comedy series “On the Air,” following the run of “Twin Peaks.” More recently, he had roles on the TV series “The Protector,” the 2007 version of “Bionic Woman” and “Desperate Housewives,” and did voice work on shows including “Jackie Chan Adventures,” “Young Justice” and “Adventure Time.”
