Actor Kevin Costneff has died.
The Associated Press reports that the actor, who won a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of the criminal mastermind behind the murder of his father in the 1960s, died Tuesday at his home in the San Fernando Valley.
His daughter, Kelli, said he was 81.
A representative for the actor did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
His father, who played a police officer in the film “Greed, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” died in 2010.
The character was played by Costneffer in the 1971 film “The Big Sleep.”
He played a different detective in the next movie, “The Silence of the Lambs,” which also starred Richard Gere.
