(CNN) — James Rebhorn, whose acting resume includes a long list of character roles in major films and TV shows, died Friday, his representative said Sunday. Rebhorn was 65.

While you may not know his name, Rebhorn’s face may be familiar as the arrogant headmaster in Al Pacino’s “Scent of a Woman” or the scheming secretary of defense in “Independence Day.”

Think back to the series finale of TV’s “Seinfeld” in 1998. Rebhorn played the district attorney.

More recently, he was Frank Matheson in eight episodes of “Homeland.”

Rebhorn was one of those busy actors sometimes referred to as “that guy.” Tall and gangly, he had a face that served him well as a villain or corrupt politician.

“He died on Friday at home with his loving family in attendance,” rep Dianne Busch told CNN.
