Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LOS ANGELES — Misfortune has struck CBS studios. Miguel Ferrer, who starred as Owen Granger on the hit crimefighting series NCIS: Los Angeles, passed away on Thursday. He was 61. Miguel is the son of Oscar-winning actor Jose Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney, the cousin of George Clooney. Miguel had been battling cancer for quite awhile. He went out a fighter. “Today, NCIS: Los Angeles lost a beloved family member,” said showrunner R. Scott Gemmill in a statement. “Miguel was a man of tremendous talent who had a powerful dramatic presence on screen, a wicked sense of humor, and a huge heart. Our thoughts go out to his wife Lori, his sons, and his entire family. He will be greatly missed.”

Miguel joined the cast as the assistant director of NCIS in 2012, opposite Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J and Linda Hunt. He originally came across as a hard ass. But, during the course of the ensuing seasons, he warmed up to team members and became a friend. NCIS: Los Angeles is in its eighth season.

Miguel is survived by his wife Lori, sons Lukas and Rafi and his siblings.

  1. RIP, seems like every time I saw him in a movie I knew someone was about to get double crossed lol

  2. Rip ?? it was good actor on ncis Los Angeles

  3. He was a great character actor. Not as popular as Allan Rickman, but nonetheless as good as him.

    He was adept in playing villains as well as one of the good guys. I remember him in Robocop and even showed his comedic skills in Hotshots!

    And I was surprised he’s a cousin of George Clooney.

    RIP Miguel Ferrer.

    So sad to hear that Miguel passed away and hopefully he didn’t feel much pain,I for some
    reason just always liked him and I can’t understand why because I never watched much of his films,he just always came across as genuinely nice person which is rare nowadays in the film industry and that makes it all the more sad knowing that he is gone,prayers go out to his family and love ones.

  7. Awe his parents were the late Rosemary Clooney & Jose Ferrer…which also makes him George Clooney’s cousin. He was a wonderful actor & will be dearly missed, may he R.I.P. ?

  12. Saddened to hear of his death. Definitely inherited his father’s talent. Had small parts in movies like ‘Star Trek III’ before establishing himself and equally good at drama or comedy.
