  • Actor John Mahoney has passed away at 77.

Veteran actor John Mahoney has died, it was confirmed late Monday. He was 77.

The actor, best-known for his role on the hit TV series Frasier, was also an ensemble member of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre. He most recently starred in the theater’s production of The Rembrandt.

A spokesperson for Steppenwolf said the theater was canceling Monday's opening-night performance of You Got Older out of respect for Mahoney’s passing. The theater was encouraging opening-night ticket holders to gather at the theater Monday evening for remembrances and a moment of silence.

Though no official cause of death has been disclosed, Steppenwolf Theatre artistic director Anna D. Shapiro, who was a longtime friend of Mr. Mahoney, said he'd been quite frail in recent months.

Updates will be added to the Sun-Times obituary.
