Unhappy Actor Jon Polito (1950-2016)

Link

Actor Jon Polito, who was best known for his roles in Coen brother films like "The Big Lebowski," "Miller's Crossing" and "Barton Fink," has died.

He was 65.

Film director John McNaughton broke the tragic news Friday morning on Facebook, writing that he was saddened to hear that his dear friend and collaborator has passed away.


"John is probably best known for his work in Coen Brothers films, notably Barton Fink, Miller's Crossing and The Big Lebowski. Jon and I worked together in TV starting with episodes of Homicide: Life on the Street, some pilots and Masters of Horror," McNaughton wrote.

"He appeared in over 100 films, countless TV episodes and on Broadway. Jon was a born actor and will be deeply missed by his legion of friends, fans, family and of course his longtime partner, Darryl Armbruster to whom I send my condolences. R.I.P. old pal JM," the director continued.

Polito died on Thursday, family sources told TMZ. The celebrated actor was diagnosed with Melanoma in 2008 and recently underwent surgery that led to an infection. He slipped into a coma last Sunday, according to the gossip site.

The Philadelphia native starred in more than 100 movies and also made countless appearances in television series since the early 80s. Polito was also known for his voice work.

The actor also starred in three episodes of ABC's hit sitcom "Modern Family" as Earl Chambers, who is character Jay Pritchett's nemesis at work.


He most recently landed a role in the film "The Maestro," which is currently in pre-production.

I'm a huge Coen bros fan so definitely familiar with Polito in those. He was a great actor, loved his voice. Especially love his performance in Miller's Crossing.

He was in one of my favorite films, The Crow, as the sleazy pawn shop owner.
