Mere days after Hollywood mourned Harold Ramis, ‘The Warriors’ fan-favorite star Roger Hill passed away at the age of 65.

Roger Hill, best known for his role as Cyrus in the 1979 cult classic film, The Warriors, died on Thursday, February 20, in New York. The cause of death is yet to be determined.

His screen time was small, but mighty. Roger Hill will be deeply missed by The Warriors fans, as he is remembered for his charismatic part, as gang leader, Cyrus.

The actor, who passed away at the age of 65, only had a total of six television and film roles, including playing Alex Lowndes on One Life to Live from 1983-1984, but he definitely made his mark on Hollywood in Walter Hill’s cult smash hit.

Before his breakout role, the New York native worked as an actor for nearly 20 years. Acting primarily in theater, Roger starred in many Off Broadway productions including “Hamlet,” “No Place to Be Somebody,” and “The Fabulous Miss Marie.” Roger was one of the first students in Frank Silvera‘s Writers’ Workshop.

Most recently, the late actor made headlines in 2005 for suing Rockstar Games for $250,000 when they used his voice in The Warriors video game.

Roger is survived by his only son, Chris W. Hill.
