His film career delined in the 1990s after a series of unsuccessful movies. Later he was seem in featured roles in Donnie Darko (2001) and Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004). He finally lost a long battle with pancreatic cancer, but only after courageously making a final TV series called The Beast.
