Homeland actor James Rebhorn dies

James Rebhorn, a prolific character actor who appeared in Homeland, Scent Of A Woman and My Cousin Vinny, has died aged 65.

Rebhorn's agent Dianne Busch said the actor died on March 21 at his home in New Jersey. She declined to give details on the nature of his death.

In five decades of television and film work, Rebhorn amassed more than 100 credits, ranging from a shipping magnate in The Talented Mr Ripley to the prosecutor in the series finale of the TV comedy Seinfeld.

The lanky but piercing Rebhorn, raised a Lutheran in Indiana, often played astringent authorities, like the headmaster in Scent Of A Woman and lawyers on Boston Legal and The Practice.

On Homeland, he played the father of CIA officer Carrie Mathison.
