The late actor also was nominated for two Golden Globes for the role - and he won a Screen Actors Guild award for playing Martin.

Few details are known about the exact cause of John's death, though he had previously suffered from colon cancer in the mid-eighties.

In Chicago, Mahoney was a longtime and beloved ensemble member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre.

Tributes have been paid in memory of John Mahoney, who has died at the age of seventy-seven.

Hollywood beckoned, and Mahoney quickly became an in-demand character actor on the small and large screens thanks to memorable roles in such films as Tin Men, Moonstruck, Eight Men Out and Say Anything, playing the father of the teenage girl relentlessly pursued by John Cusack's character. Throughout the 11 seasons of Frasier, Mahoney carried a cane and walked with a limp.

He moved to the United States at 19, becoming a US citizen in 1959 and settled in IL under his sister's sponsorship.

The actor told the Associated Press in a 2015 interview that he fell in love with Chicago after visiting the IL city as a student. But I just miss home so much.

It wasn't long before he became entrenched in Chicago's vibrant theatre scene, becoming a regular performer at Chicago's famed Steppenwolf Theatre.

Scrubs star Zach Braff said he was "honored" to work with Mahoney and "he could not have been a kinder man".

"John's impact on this institution, on Chicago theatre, and the world of arts and entertainment is great and will endure". "He used to say to me that he was never happy unless he was home in Chicago". On Monday night the company cancelled the scheduled opening night performance of it's current production You Got Older out of respect for the actor.
