'Dirty Harry' & 'Seinfeld' Actor Reni Santoni Dies After Long Illness at Age 81

Reni Santoni has sadly died, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor, who famously starred opposite Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry and as Poppie in Seinfeld, passed away on Saturday, August 1, in Los Angeles, following a long health battle that included cancer.

On top of Dirty Harry and Seinfeld, Reni had a long filmography and also appeared in Only You, The Brady Bunch Movie, Howard Stern‘s Private Parts, Doctor Dolittle and 28 Days.

Reni got his big break in film when he was cast in Enter Laughing, which was based on Carl Reiner‘s book of the same name. Carl passed away earlier this year as well.

Reni leaves behind one son, Nick.

We’ve already lost so many amazing stars throughout 2020.
