Glenne Headly passes away at the age of 62

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Glenne Headly has passed away at the age of 62 years old. The sad news was broken by her Rep:

“It is with deep sorrow that we confirm the passing of Glenne Headly. We ask that her family’s privacy be respected during this difficult time.”

Headly had many roles in film and TV including Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Paperhouse, Stars and Bars, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Fraiser, E.R., The X-Files, Encore! Encore!, Rugruts, The Burbs, Monk, Psych, Parks and Recreation, The Purple Rose of Cairo, and Fandango but it was her role as Tess Trueheart alongside Warren Beatty in Dick Tracy shot her onto the Cult Faction radar.

Headly was nominated for an Emmy for her role in the 1989 miniseries Lonesome Dove, as well as 1996’s Bastard Out of Carolina. She was in production on the Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg produced Hulu comedy series Future Man at the time of her death. The series stars Ed Begley Jr., Eliza Coupe and Josh Hutcherson. It revolves around a janitor and gamer by night who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity. The show’s producer Sony Pictures Television have announced that Headly’s role would not be recast but that she would remain in the episodes completed so far.
