You recognized the face, if not the name. James Rebhorn was a nonpareil character actor who played a wide variety of roles who left a definite mark with TV and movie audiences. He was memorable as the arrogant headmaster in Al Pacino's "Scent of a Woman" or the scheming secretary of defense in "Independence Day." Rebhorn died last week after a brief illness. He was 65 years old.
Tall and lanky, James Rebhorn had a face that served him well as either a villain or corrupt politician. Other notable film roles were in "My Cousin Vinny" in 1992 and "The Game" in 1997.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "Seinfeld" fans will remember him as the district attorney in the final episode of that cult TV series. More recently, Rebhorn was Frank Matheson in eight episodes of "Homeland."
Tall and lanky, he had a face that served him well as either a villain or corrupt politician. Other notable film roles were in "My Cousin Vinny" in 1992 and "The Game" in 1997.
"He died on Friday at home with his loving family in attendance," his representative, Dianne Busch said.
Rebhorn was invited to become a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences in 2007.
His earlier screen acting career included regular roles on several soaps, including "Search for Tomorrow" and "As the World Turns," which earned him an outstanding supporting actor nomination by Soap Opera Digest in 1992, according to the Internet Movie Database.
His film roles included such titles as "Silkwood," "Shadows and Fog," "Basic Instinct," "My Cousin Vinny," "Scent of a Woman," "Carlito's Way," "Independence Day," "The Talented Mr. Ripley," "The Game," "Far From Heaven" and "Cold Mountain." Recent film appearances included "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," "Sleepwalk With Me," "Real Steel" and "The Box."
His stage acting career included membership in New York's Ensemble Studio Theatre.
