In addition to his TV and film resume, The Hollywood Reporter points out Rebhorn also worked with the Roundabout Theatre Company. He recently starred in the show "Too Much, Too Much, Too Many."

Rebhorn attended Wittenberg University and said that's really where his acting career began.

"When I was a senior I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go. But because I had been so involved in theater and so involved specifically with acting I thought I would try to pursue that." (Via YouTube / Wittenberg University)

Rebhorn is survived by his wife Rebecca and their two daughters.
