NEW YORK (AP) — William Hurt, the Oscar-winning actor of “Broadcast News,” “Body Heat” and “The Big Chill,” has died.
He was 71.
Hurt’s son said in a statement that Hurt died Sunday of natural causes. Deadline first reported Hurt’s death. In a long-running career, Hurt was four times nominated for an Academy Award, winning for 1985’s “Kiss of the Spider Woman.” Hurt’s laconic charisma and self-assured subtlety as an actor made him one of the 1980s foremost leading men.
Later, he would transition into a character actor in movies such as “A History of Violence,” while also appearing in several Marvel films as General “Thunderbolt” Ross.
