Actor Bruce MacVittie died in a Manhattan hospital on Saturday. He was 65.
His wife, Carol Ochs, confirmed the news to the New York Times on Thursday.
MacVittie was best known for his roles in The Sopranos and Sex and the City.
No cause of death was disclosed.
Originally from Providence, RI, MacVittie made his bones on Broadway. He worked as Al Pacino’s understudy in the 1983 production of American Buffalo and later took over the lead role.
His impressive credits span many well-known shows, including guest roles in Miami Vice, Sex and the City, Oz, Blue Bloods, Chicago Med and The Deuce. MacVittie also dabbled in films, appearing in Stonewall, Hannibal and Brooklyn’s Finest.
But he’s best known for his role as Danny Scalercio on The Sopranos, as well as his numerous guest appearances on Law & Order and As The World Turns.
In one of his final roles, he starred as Detective Hartigan in the Emmy Award-winning Netflix limited series “When They See Us.”
Fellow actors and fans alike paid their respects once the news of MacVittie’s death went public.
Evan Handler, who plays Charlotte York’s husband Harry Goldenblatt in the hit HBO show Sex and the City, paid tribute to his former co-star.
“I met Bruce MacVittie more than forty years ago. We worked and played together repeatedly, as actors, and as friends, throughout the ensuing decades,” he tweeted. “The unflinching presence he granted anyone in need, no matter how dire or terrifying their circumstances. Please let your friends know you love them, and let them know you’re as available as Bruce always was.”
“I loved Bruce MacVittie,” Pacino, 82, told the New York Times. “His performances were always glistening and crackling; a heart and a joy to watch. He was the embodiment of the struggling actor in New York City, and he made it work. We will miss him.”
