Hugh Dane Dies; The Office Actor Was 75

Hugh Dane, a veteran actor best known for portraying a security guard named Hank on The Office, passed away last month.

He was 75 years old.

According to the Los Angeles Inner City Cultural Center, which hosted a celebration of life event in honor of Dane, the actor sadly died on May 16.

As of this writing, the circumstances surrounding his death are unknown.

Dane appeared in such films as Bridesmaids (2011), Little Fockers (2010) and Joy Ride (2001), while most recently having a role on ABC’s The Mayor.

But his death is most notable to television fans who recognize him as Hank, the mostly quiet and hilariously stern security guard on the aforementioned NBC sitcom who didn’t put up with any of Dwight or Michael’s BS.

In the wake of this tragic news, a number of The Office stars have taken to social media in order to express their condolences.

Mindy Kaling, for example, referred to Dane one of the funniest actors “ever,” adding on Twitter:

“I loved writing and acting with him.”

Added Rainn Wilson:

“RIP Hugh Dane, aka Hank the security guard. He was one of the greats. So kind, funny, talented. We will all miss him. Donations can be made in his name to: http://www.innercityculturalcenter.org.”

Steve Carell, meanwhile, kept things short and simple and to the heartbreaking point:

“What a terrific guy.”

Dane had been acting since 1990.

He rose to fame with roles on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Bridesmaids, as mentioned previously, before landing his recurring role on The Office for nearly a decade.

Other TV credits on his resume include The West Wing, Roc and Boy Meets World.

This Saturday, June 9, The Inner City Cultural Center will pay tribute to Dane at the Vision Theater in Los Angeles.

The Inner City Cultural Center is an organization that helps minority creatives foster their talent.

It sounds like Hugh Dane was a really great guy, widely respected and appreciated by all who knew him and all who worked with him.

May he rest in peace.
