Actor Miguel Ferrer died yesterday after a battle with throat cancer. He was only 61 years old.

You may know him best from "NCIS: Los Angeles", where he's played Owen Granger since 2012.

He was also on "Twin Peaks" and "Crossing Jordan" and he appears in at least one episode of Showtime's "Peaks" revival. Some of his movie credits include the original "Robocop", "Iron Man 3",  and "Traffic".

Miguel was the son of actor Jose Ferrer and singer Rosemary Clooney. Yep, he's George Clooney's cousin.

George said about his cousin: "Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day . . . pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will."
