‘9 To 5’ and ‘Tootsie’ fame Dabney Coleman dies at 92

Famous Hollywood actor, Dabney Coleman, achieved major milestones in his career. He was known for playing mean and humorous villains and bosses who ended up being jerks. The actor from ‘9 to 5’ and ‘Tootsie’ died at the age of 92.

The news of his death was confirmed by his daughter, Quincy Coleman. The actor died on Thursday in Santa Monica at his home. Quincy confirmed that Coleman died on May 16, 2024 at 1:50 p.m

She said in the statement to the media:

My father spent his time here on earth with a curious mind, a generous heart and a soul on fire with passion, desire and humor that tickled humanity’s funny bone.

While he was alive, he went through this last act of his life with grace, excellence and mastery.

The Primetime Emmy Award winner played an egotistical talk show host on NBC’s Buffalo Bill in 1983. The show lasted two seasons and revolved around the host’s journey at a TV station in Buffalo, New York. Although the show was loved by critics, it could only offer 26 episodes.

Additionally, he was praised for playing a sexist soap director, Ron Carlisle, in 1982’s Tootsie.

Despite being popular for his selfish and villainous roles, Coleman did not lack versatility in his acting. The Golden Globe winner married twice. His second wife, Jean Hale, fathered four children.
