Glenne Headly, an actress best known for big roles in "Dick Tracy" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," died on Thursday at just 63, and her colleagues on the new Hulu comedy series "Future Man" are stunned.
Headly was in production on Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's new sci-fi comedy series, in which she starred alongside lead Josh Hutcherson, who joined Rogen in paying tribute to her on social media immediately after the news broke Friday morning.
Devastated to hear about Glenne Headly's passing. She was an amazing person. Incredibly talented. Incredibly kind. I will miss her.
"She was powerful and strong and hilarious," Hutcherson wrote. "Her eyes brought to life so many amazing characters over the years and her love brought to life a beautiful family. I'm gonna miss her presence, her smile, and the way she made me feel like her son before, between, and after they called action and cut. Grab onto those who make you feel loved. My heart is broken today and I can only imagine what those closest to her are going through."
A cause of death has not yet been released by her representatives, who confirmed her death to the media, but TMZ reported she checked in to a hospital last week to get treatment for blood clots. Although she seemed to be getting better, her health took a turn for the worse on Thursday before she died.
"It is with deep sorrow that we confirm the passing of Glenne Headly," her reps said in a statement. "We ask that her family's privacy be respected in this difficult time."
Headly started her acting career in theatre, where she met former husband John Malkovich, who directed her in a Broadway play before she broke out on the big screen opposite Steve Martin in comedy "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels." She received her first of two Emmy nominations in 1989 for her role in TV miniseries "Lonesome Dove," then famously played Tess Trueheart in Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy" and starred alongside Richard Dreyfuss in 1995 Oscar-nominated drama "Mr. Holland's Opus."
Other film and TV credits include "ER," "Don Jon," "The Night Of" and, most recently, "The Circle."
