Will Smith’s Men in Black Co-Star Dies Suddenly

It has been noted that at the age of 99, actor Mike Nussbaum, who appeared in Will Smith’s “Men in Black” and “Field of Dreams,” has passed away.



According to the Associated Press, he was the oldest professional working actor in the U.S.

The New York Post reported:

Nussbaum died of natural causes in his Chicago home, just six days shy of his 100th birthday, according to his daughter, Karen.

“He was a good father and a good man who raised us to care about other people and respect other people and care about justice,” Karen told the AP.

A stage and screen actor and director, Nussbaum received a lifetime achievement award from the League of Chicago Theaters in 2019. At the time, he was proclaimed to be the oldest working member of Actors’ Equity.

Celebrities and fans took to social media to share their condolences.

Nussbaum’s first wife, Annette Brenner, passed away in 2003 after 56 years of marriage. The couple had three children: labor leader Karen, playwright/novelist Susan, and labor leader Jack. Susan died of pneumonia in 2022 at age 68.
