'30 Rock' Actor & SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard Dead at 71

Sad news – longtime actor and the president of SAG-AFTRA, Ken Howard, has passed away.

He was 71 years old and probably best known for his roles in The White Shadow, Crossing Jordan, and most recently, as Hank Hooper on 30 Rock.

Ken was an inspirational leader and it is an incredible loss for SAG-AFTRA, for his family and for everyone who knew him,” Acting President Gabrielle Carteris said in a statement. “He was a light that never dimmed and was completely devoted to the membership. He led us through tumultuous times and set our union on a steady course of excellence. We will be forever in his debt.”

Our thoughts go out to Ken‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
