Homeland actor James Rebhorn has passed away at the age of 65, confirms TMZ. The actor's wife Rebecca Linn confirmed that he'd been battling skin cancer since 1992.

Apparently he was diagnosed in the early '90s and had been receiving treatment since. However, his condition worsened as of late and he was placed in hospice care recently at home in New Jersey. He reportedly passed away Friday.

Rebhorn played Claire Danes' character's father in Homeland and also starred in many TV shows in movies over the years, including Law & Order, White Collar, Meet the Parents, and even placed Jerry, George, Kramer, and Elaine in jail in the series finale of Seinfeld.
