RIP James Rebhorn

Awesome character actor that just passed away. He was in so many good films.
My favorite role of his was in The Game.

Such an awesome actor. Loved him particularly in Independence Day, The Game and Meet the Parents. And of course more recently he was so great as Claire Danes' father in the TV show Homeland. Really going to miss him on that show now.

Sad to hear of his passing. I have only seen him in The Game, and ID4. I always remember how much of a dick he was in ID4. Great actor. Huge loss!

In addition to ID4, I also took pleasure in his small role as District Attorney Norwalk in Carlito's Way.

You mean the series finale.

I'll remember him most for both that role and as Jude Law's father in "The Talented Mr. Ripley."

He always reminded me of one of my former bosses. Whenever he would pop up in a film I would say there goes my boss. Farewell to a beyond great character actor

Definitely. He was perfectly cast for that role.

RIP to the consummate "that guy". He was very cleverly cast in The Game, as a "that guy" actor whom Sean Penn recognizes from a TV commercial. Also liked him a lot as Carrie's dad on Homeland.

He wrote his own obituary

His Life, According to Jim

James Robert Rebhorn was born on Sept. 1, 1948, in Philadelphia, PA. His mother, Ardell Frances Rebhorn, nee Hoch, loved him very much and supported all his dreams. She taught him the value of good manners and courtesy, and that hospitality is no small thing. His father, James Harry Rebhorn, was no less devoted to him. From him, Jim learned that there is no excuse for poor craftsmanship. A job well done rarely takes more or less time than a job poorly done. They gave him his faith and wisely encouraged him to stay in touch with God.
He is survived by his sister, Janice Barbara Galbraith, of Myrtle Beach, SC. She was his friend, his confidant, and, more often than either of them would like to admit, his bridge over troubled waters.
He is also survived by his wife, Rebecca Fulton Linn, and his two daughters, Emma Rebecca Rebhorn and Hannah Linn Rebhorn. They anchored his life and gave him the freedom to live it. Without them, always at the center of his being, his life would have been little more than a vapor. Rebecca loved him with all his flaws, and in her the concept of ceaseless love could find no better example.
His children made him immensely proud. Their dedication to improving our species and making the world a better place gave him hope for the future. They deal with grief differently, and they should each manage it as they see fit. He hopes, however, that they will grieve his passing only as long as necessary. They have much good work to do, and they should get busy doing it. Time is flying by. His son-in-law, Ben, also survives him. Jim loved Ben, who was as a son to Jim, especially through these last months.
His aunts Jean, Dorothy and Florence, numerous cousins and their families, and many devoted friends also survive Jim. He loved them all, and he knows they loved him.
Jim received his BA at Wittenberg University and his MFA at Columbia. He was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Nu Zeta 624, a life-long Lutheran, and a longtime member of both the AMC and ACLU.
Jim was fortunate enough to earn his living doing what he loved. He was a professional actor. His unions were always there for him, and he will remain forever grateful for the benefits he gained as a result of the union struggle. Without his exceptional teachers and the representation of the best agents in the business, he wouldn’t have had much of a career. He was a lucky man in every way.
–Jim Rebhorn, March 2014

One of my top 5 favorite character actors. Rebhorn, Ramis and my favorite actor, PS Hoffman are all gone in the new year. Such a bummer. Loved his roles in Scent of a Woman, ID4 and Meet The Parents.

His most memorable role was as the headmaster in SCENT OF A WOMAN, going up against Pacino's Oscar-winning Lt. Col. Frank Slade role and holding his own during the prep school's mock courtroom melodrama in the film's final act!
