'Barney Miller,' 'Firefly' star Ron Glass dies at 71

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Ron Glass, best known for his roles on "Barney Miller" and "Firefly", has passed away at the age of 71.

Glass' representative confirmed his death, but had no further details regarding the cause or location, according to The Hollywood Reporter.



The actor made his TV debut in 1973 and appeared in countless series through 2014. He earned a supporting actor Primetime Emmy nomination for his role as Detective Ron Harris on the '70s sitcom "Barney Miller," which he did for seven years.

His other shows included, "All in the Family", "Sanford and Son", "Hawaii Five-O" and Joss Whedon's short-lived "Firefly", as well as two episodes of popular sitcom "Friends".

Glass was still a regular face on American television as recently as 2014 when he appeared in an episode of "CSI". That same year he appeared in "Agents of SHIELD" as Dr Streiten.

His Hollywood peers and co-stars were quick to react to the news on Twitter.

Actor Samuel L Jackson, who worked with Glass in 2008 film "Lakeview Terrace", wrote, "It was an Honor and a Pleasure to work with the Amazing Ron Glass RIP, Sir!"

"Shepard, don't move. Won't go far. We love you, Ron Glass. Don't go far," wrote Nathan Fillion.

"Ron Glass was one of the greatest actors to work with. His laugh was beyond infectious and his generosity was ever present. #ripronglass," Alan Tudyk tweeted.

"Happy rebirth, dear Ron Glass. Among the kindest and gentlest souls to have walked this earth with us," wrote Adam Baldwin.
