The Office US series star Hugh Dane dies aged 75

Actor Hugh Dane, known for portraying security guard Hank in the United States remake of The Office, has died at the age of 75. Hugh died on May 16, but no information about a cause of death was revealed. Furthermore, he had a fair number of movies under his belt, including Bridesmaids, Little Fockers, and Joy Ride.

The Office actor Hugh Dane has died aged 75 after over three decades in showbiz. Dane appeared as the no-nonsense character in 22 episodes of the hit sitcom, beginning in season two and continuing up until the show's last season in 2013. News of his death spread on Monday evening when "The Office" star Rainn Wilson posted a message on Twitter.

Steve Carell retweeted Wilson's post that same day and added, "What a terrific guy".


On June 4, Rainn Wilson tweeted out a clip of a scene he shared with Dane and wrote, "RIP Hugh Dane, aka Hank the security guard".

Anyone wishing to make a donation in his name is asked to give to the Inner City Cultural Center. In total, Dane acted in almost 50 different projects, from TV series to movies, and even to a few video games.

Most recently, Dane made cameos in the Curb Your Enthusiasm revival and Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. He will certainly be missed by his co-stars and fans of The Office. In lieu of flowers, Dane's family is asking others to donate to The Inner City Cultural Center, an organization which helps minority creatives foster their talent.
