Tony Award Winning actor Phillip Bosco has died at 88 years of age according to reports on Wednesday.
Actor Philip Bosco, who appeared in a slew of notable movie, TV and Broadway productions over a decades-long entertainment career, died Monday at 88.
The longtime actor — whose most prominent films included “The Savages,” “The Money Pit” and “Working Girl” — passed away at his Hawthorn, N.J. home, members of his family confirmed.
Bosco had experienced complications with dementia, his daughter Celia Bosco said, according to The Associated Press.
In addition to his lengthy on-screen career, Bosco was an acclaimed theatrical performer who earned six Tony nominations between 1961 and 2005.
He won one of those nominations, taking home the award for Lead Actor in 1989 for his performance in “Lend Me a Tenor,” in which he portrayed the leader of an opera organization.
His other notable onstage performances included roles in “The Crucible” in 1972, “A Streetcar Named Desire” in 1973 and “Twelve Angry Men” in 2004, with the latter netting him his final Tony nomination.
Born in Jersey City in 1930, Bosco made the American Theater Hall of Fame in 1988.
