Actor Ron Leibman lived a career that spanned six decades and won a Tony for Tony Kushner’s iconic play titled Ängels in America.
Leibman’s agent, Robert Attermann, said the actor died Friday. He gave no further details, but a person who knew the actor, and chooses to remain anonymous, said the cause was pneumonia.
Attermann said, “Ron was an incredibly talented actor with a distinguished career in film, TV, and theatre. Our thoughts go out to his wife, Jessica, and his family.”
In his long career, Leibman appeared in numerous films including Norma Rae, opposite Sally Field, and Slaughterhouse-Five. He won an Emmy award in 1979 for the CBS series Kaz, created by him. He was perhaps best known on television for his role on Friends, in which he played Dr. Leonard Green, the father of Rachel, played by Jennifer Aniston.
