Friends star Mike Hagerty has passed away at the age of 67.
The grieving family of the actor, who appeared on Friends and Somebody, Somewhere, paid tribute and said he would be ‘sorely missed.’
Co-star Bridget Everett announced the heartbreaking news online writing: “With great sadness, the family of Michael G. Hagerty announced his death yesterday in Los Angeles.”
“A beloved character actor, his love of his hometown of Chicago and his family were the cornerstones of his life,” Everett continued.
“Mike, a devoted husband, is survived by his wife Mary Kathryn, his sister Mary Ann Hagerty (and) her wife Kathleen O’Rourke, and their daughter Meg.
“He will be sorely missed.”
Shocked fans took to Twitter and shared their sadness over the heartbreaking news, with one writing: “I’m extremely saddened to hear that Mike Hagerty has passed away. I wanted so badly to do a Random Roles with him for the AV Club, but even though he was a Chicago guy, the pitch was a no-go.
“Most depressing is that we were supposed to do an interview for my Substack newsletter when SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE premiered, but due to a scheduling issue, it never happened…and now it never will. #RIPMikeHagerty.”
Another wrote: “RIP Mike Hagerty. Funny, sweet and a total pro. Thanks for the decades of laughs.”
A third said: “Rest in Peace to Mike Hagerty. If you watched TV/Movies in the 90s, then you know that Mike is one of the all time “That Guys”. Always loved when he popped up and his roles in Wayne’s World and Seinfeld are legendary.”
Another commented: “Sad to hear of the passing of Second City stalwart and character actor Mike Hagerty, recently seen as the dad on “Somebody Somewhere” on @HBO. Mike had the classic Chicago mustache and accent, and a natural onscreen presence. He always came to play.”
One of Hagerty’s iconic scenes in Friends saw him dance with Joey as he practiced some moves to impress Marge.
