What was Brian Dennehy's net worth when he died?

Brian Dennehy, the Golden Globe and Tony-winning actor whose extensive TV work earned him multiple Emmy nominations, has died at 81.

Dennehy died on April 15 from natural causes not related to the novel coronavirus.

After a recurring role in Dynasty in 1981, Dennehy came to prominence the following year playing the overzealous sheriff who takes on Sylvester Stallone's John Rambo in First Blood. He also starred in movies like Tommy Boy, Cocoon, Silverado, Romeo + Juliet, and many more.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda paid tribute to the man on Twitter, saying: "Was lucky enough to see Brian Dennehy twice on stage, masterful in Love Letters, and monumentally heartbreaking in Death Of A Salesman".

His daughter, Elizabeth Dennehy, also confirmed the passing of her father in a tweet.

A scholarship at Columbia University followed and then five years of service in the US Marines.

"'Character actors! Who gives a. if we're fat?", Patton Oswalt tweeted profanely about his "Ratatouille" costar, alluding to what Dennehy allegedly told him when the actors ran into each other at a buffet at the "Batman Begins" premiere.

The 6-foot-3-inch Brian Dennehy went to Hollywood for his first movie, Semi-Tough starring Burt Reynolds and Kris Kristofferson. After "Death of a Salesman" and "Long Day's Journey Into Night", the actor played Matthew Harrison Brady in a 2007 revival of "Inherit the Wind" opposite Christopher Plummer as Henry Drummond. His father was an Associated Press journalist, his mother a nurse, and by the age of 14, Mr. Dennehy was acting onstage, appearing as the lead in a high school production of "Macbeth".

Dennehy usually played street-smart, edgy characters who you wouldn't want to mess around with.

She said she is "just devastated" by his death.

"They is no one i enjoyed working with more".

In the early to mid-'90s Dennehy starred as a Chicago police detective in the "Jack Reed" series of TV movies, several of which he also wrote and directed.

Brian Dennehy is survived by his second spouse, costume designer Jennifer Arnott and their two youngsters, Cormac and Sarah.
