James Rebhorn was in more than 100 films, television shows and plays — often as a man in a suit, the New York Times observes. Rebhorn's most recent high-profile part was as Frank Mathison, the father of CIA agent Carrie Mathison in "Homeland." In a key plot point, both Carrie and Frank live with bipolar disorder. Rebhorn was the prosecutor in the final episode of "Seinfeld," Dr. Kaplan in two episodes of "30 Rock," the secretary of defense in "Independence Day," Dr. Larry Banks in "Meet the Parents," Dr. McElwaine in "Basic Instinct," and Mr. Trask in "Scent of a Woman." Rebhorn died Friday of melanoma at home in South Orange, N.J.
