Iconic character actor James Rebhorn, best known of late for his role in Homeland, has died.

The 65-year-old died in his home on Friday, according to reports, but his family declined against announcing it until now.

Homeland fans will recognise him as Claire Danes' character Carrie Matheson's father on the hit series and astute fans of Seinfeld will hold a special place in their hearts for him as he played the district attorney who hilariously convicted the gang in the 1998 series finale.

He has played supporting roles in Meet The Parents, Independent Day, My Cousin Vinny and Scent of a Woman as well as featuring on teelvision shows such as 30 Rock, The Good Wife, The Practice, Law and Order and Boston Legal.
