Unhappy "Bob" Star John Cygan Dies at 63

John Cygan, Actor on "The Commish", Dies at 63
by Mike Barnes
5/15/17



John Cygan, who played Lt. Paulie Pentangeli on the 1990s ABC series "The Commish" and then provided his voice for dozens of films and video games, has died. He was 63.

Cygan died Saturday at his home in Woodland Hills after a long battle with cancer, Jonn Wasser of the Atlas Talent Agency told The Hollywood Reporter.

Survivors include his wife Cathy and children Annie and Jack.





Cygan appeared on 35 episodes of "The Commish" as Pentangeli, who worked for police commissioner Tony Scali (Michael Chiklis) in upstate New York. His character shot an unarmed suspect at the start of the show's second season and was fired, only to return in season four.

Cygan also starred opposite Bob Newhart both played comic book artists at a Chicago-based company on the short-lived sitcom "Bob", which ran from 1992-93 on CBS.



A native of New York, Cygan also appeared on episodes of "Frasier", "Diagnosis Murder", "Becker", "The X-Files", "NYPD Blue", "Judging Amy", "The Shield", and "Modern Family".

Cygan voiced characters in the Pixar films Cars (2006), WALL-E (2008), Up (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010), Monsters University (2013) and Inside Out (2015).

I may be one of the few fans of Bob but I've always enjoyed that series (I even watched it in its original run). John Cygan's Harlan character was a great one for that show and was missed when the format changed for the second season and he, along with most of the supporting cast didn't return.

Rest in Peace, John Cygan. ;(

I never saw him on 'Bob' but I loved him on 'The Commish'. Now him & Theresa Saldana from that show have both passed in the last year
