Seasoned star Brian Dennehy, understood for functions in “Rambo: First Blood,” “Tommy Kid” and “To Catch A Killer,” died Wednesday at age 81.

He passed away of natural causes in New Haven, Conn., according to Kate Cafaro of ICM Partners, the actor’s representatives.

Understood for his broad frame, thriving voice and ability to play good guys and bad people with equivalent aplomb, Dennehy won 2 Tony Awards, a Golden World and was nominated for six Emmys. He was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Popularity in 2010.

Ultimately, Dennehy wearied of the studio life. “Movies utilized to be fun,” he observed in an interview. “They looked after you, top-notch. Those days are gone.”

Dennehy had a long connection with Chicago’s Goodman Theater, which had a reputation for heavy drama. He appeared in Bertolt Brecht’s “Galileo” in 1986 and later Chekhov’s “Cherry Orchard” at far lower incomes than he made in Hollywood.
