Powers Boothe, a veteran character actor, died Sunday at the age of 68 -- a few weeks shy of his 69th birthday.
Actor and friend Beau Bridges was first to release the news via Twitter:
It's with great sadness that I mourn the passing of my friend Powers Boothe. A dear friend, great actor, devoted father & husband.— Beau Bridges (@MrBeauBridges) May 14, 2017
The late actor's publicist confirmed the death to TVLine.
Booth, who passed away in his sleep Sunday morning, is arguably best known for his role on HBO's "Deadwood," where he played saloon owner Cy Tolliver.
The latter role he would reprise on ABC's "Agents of SHIELD."
