NEW YORK (AP) – The actor known to many for his recurring role as Gunther on “Friends,” has died.

James Michael Tyler was 59 – and his manager says he died yesterday at his home from prostate cancer.

He was first diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2018.

Tyler was in the 1990s series “Just Shoot Me!” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” before being cast as a background player in the second episode of “Friends” in 1994.

He ended up logging the most recurring appearances as a guest, playing a barista who was smitten by Rachel, played by Jennifer Aniston.
