Hollywood actor Jon Cedar has died after a brief battle with leukaemia.
The star passed away on Thursday (14Apr11) in Tarzana, California. He was 80.
Cedar started his career on the stage, appearing Off-Broadway and in tours across the U.S. in shows including The Deputy and South Pacific.
He also racked up a number of roles in feature films including Foxy Brown, Capricorn One and Murder in Mind, while also appearing in TV shows such as Hogan's Heroes, Moonlighting, Matlock and Murder, She Wrote.
Cedar is survived by his longtime companion, Elynore Leigh, his actress daughter Loren Thompson, producer son Michael and his actor brother George, as well as several grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday (21Apr11) at the Groman Eden Mortuary in Mission Hills, California, according to Variety.com.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
