Seymour Cassel, Actor in Numerous Wes Anderson Films, Dies at 84
Seymour Cassel, the Academy Award-nominated actor who regularly collaborated with Wes Anderson and John Cassavetes, died Sunday following complications from Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 84, according to multiple media outlets including the Associated Press.

Born in Detroit in 1935, Cassel’s career in film began alongside Cassavetes’ as he took a role as a crew member on the legendary filmmaker’s 1959 debut film “Shadows,” a job which turned into an uncredited onscreen role and then into a credit as associate producer.
