Richard Dunn, character actor, dies at 73

LOS ANGELES - Richard Dunn, a longtime character actor who frequently collaborated with comics Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, died Friday after being unconscious for several days. He was 73.

His agent of 15 years, William Kerwin, says Dunn had been unconscious at a Hollywood hospital since last Sunday. Kerwin didn't immediately know the cause of death.

The lanky, bespectacled actor, listed at 5-foot-10 and 125 pounds on his resume, often appeared on "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim lineup. Dunn also had bit parts on shows including "Nip/Tuck," "Weeds" and "House."

Heidecker wrote on Twitter Friday: "Deeply saddened to announce that our friend Richard Dunn passed away . . . this morning." Wareheim tweeted: "We'll miss you Dicky Dunn. You'll be in our hearts forever." Later he wrote: "We are making a memorial site where you can send him messages. More news soon. xo."

Kerwin said arrangements were being made to bury Dunn at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. - AP
