Seymour Cassel, a character actor known for his frequent collaborations with John Cassavetes and Wes Anderson, died on Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 84.
His daughter Dilyn Cassel Murphy said the cause was complications of Alzheimer’s disease.
Mr. Cassel was a familiar face on the big and small screens for close to 60 years. He specialized in characters who were hard-boiled, irascible or just a little off-center, and though his parts were often small, they were usually memorable.
“The fun is in filling out a part and making it a little crazy,” he once said, “because everyone has a little craziness in them anyway.”
Though he was best known for his work in independent films — he said he preferred them because “independent film is film that has thought in it” — he was also seen on television shows like “Matlock,” “ER” and “Boston Public,” and in big-budget movies like “Dick Tracy” (1990), in which he played a police officer, and “Indecent Proposal” (1993), in which he played Robert Redford’s chauffeur.
Born in Detroit on Jan. 22, 1935, Mr. Cassel traveled frequently as a child with his mother, a burlesque dancer. He never met his father.
“I started performing when I was 3; I’d come out in a little checkered suit and pull down the clown’s pants — I loved that!” he told The Los Angeles Times in 1992. “I was a little ham and was a very open kid, probably because I was around adults all the time.”
Angry and rebellious as a teenager, he started drinking at 13. His mother sent him back to Detroit to live with his godmother, and he enlisted in the Navy at 17.
He eventually made his way to New York to pursue acting. It was there that he met Mr. Cassavetes, whose encouragement, he later said, saved his life. He began working on the crew of Mr. Cassavetes’s 1958 feature, “Shadows,” and ended up with a small, uncredited part.
It was his movie debut; it was also the beginning of a lifelong friendship. In 1959, he followed Mr. Cassavetes and his wife, Gena Rowlands, to Los Angeles, where he lived in their guesthouse.
He worked often for Mr. Cassavetes. His supporting role as a hippie in “Faces” (1968) earned him an Academy Award nomination. In “Minnie and Moskowitz” (1971), he and Ms. Rowlands played the title roles, a pair of mismatched lovers. He was also in Mr. Cassavetes’s “The Killing of a Chinese Bookie” (1976), “Opening Night” (1977) and “Love Streams” (1984). Mr. Cassavetes died in 1989.
Mr. Cassel’s association with Mr. Cassavetes put him on the radar of other leading directors. He worked with Sam Peckinpah in “Convoy” (1978), Elia Kazan in “The Last Tycoon” (1976) and Nicolas Roeg in “Track 29” (1988) and “Cold Heaven” (1991).
His Hollywood journey was not without problems, mostly resulting from a hard-partying lifestyle that took a toll on his health, his marriage and his family life. (His marriage to Elizabeth Deering ended in divorce in 1983.) He spent time in jail on drug charges in 1982.
Mr. Cassel entered rehab a few years later and gained a new generation of fans in the 1990s, especially when he began working with Mr. Anderson. He played the unassuming father of the precocious high school student played by Jason Schwartzman in “Rushmore” (1998), and later appeared in Mr. Anderson’s “The Royal Tenenbaums” (2001) and “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou” (2004).
“It’s a dream to become an actor,” Mr. Cassel told The Los Angeles Times in 2009. “But it’s your dream. Don’t give up on it.”
In addition to his daughter Dilyn, he is survived by another daughter, Lisa Papciak; a son, Matthew; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.B:
