*Actor Jay Leggett, a cast member in Keenan Ivory Wayans’ sketch comedy series “In Living Color,” died Saturday after collapsing on a deer hunt, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He was 50.
Leggett’s death is believed to be heart-related, but the coroner says the official cause of death is still pending.
The actor died at a family cabin in Tomahawk, Wis., where he grew up. Though Leggett lived in Los Angeles, he frequently returned to Tomahawk and even made a 2010 documentary, “To the Hunt: Deer Season in Tomahawk, Wisconsin,” about the region’s deer hunting culture.
In addition to “In Living Color,” Leggett appeared in “Ally McBeal” and “NYPD Blue.” He also wrote and produced “Employee of the Month” and “Without a Paddle.”
