Willie was shooting the latest Sex and the City revival titled And Just Like That. He was once again reprising the popular role of Stanford Blatch in New York City.

His career started long before his most famous role, as he made many small but notable appearances in hit shows throughout the ’80s and ’90s.

His credits included shows such as Mr. Belvedere, Family Ties, Coach, Quantum Leap, Monk, Ally McBeal, Party of Five, and Friends, before he took on the role of Henry Coffield in NYPD Blue between 1996 and 1999.

His infectious charm and perfect comedic timing often saw him land the role of the close friend of the lead in hit series – such as his role as Stanford in Sex and the City.

He went on to join the cast of freshman series White Collar in 2009, where he played the clever conman called Mozzie who was the close friend of Neal.

His fellow Sex and the City co-stars also paid tribute to the star on social media following the tragic news.
