Mike Hagerty, who starred in Friends and Curb Your Enthusiasm, has died aged 67.

Comedian Bridget Everett, who stars in HBO’s Somebody Somewhere with Hegarty, shared the news of his death on Instagram on Friday (6 May).

“With great sadness, the family of Michael G Hagerty announced his death yesterday in Los Angeles. A beloved character actor, his love of his hometown of Chicago and his family were the cornerstones of his life,” she wrote. No cause of death has yet been disclosed.

Hagerty was best known for starring as Mr Treeger in Friends. He was the building superintendent at Monica, Rachel, Joey, and Chandler’s apartment building and he first appeared in “The One Where Heckles Dies“, when the group of pals are cleaning Mr Heckles’ apartment.

His most popular appearance in the show among Friends fans was probably in “The One With the Ballroom Dancing”, which saw Joey agreeing to help Mr Treeger practise his ballroom dancing to appease him, after he had threatened to throw Monica and Rachel out of their apartment for illegal subletting.

It is also revealed at one point that he attends yoga class with Ross.

Mr Treeger is the last character to be mentioned by name in the entire series, which ended in 2004. In “The Last One”, Monica tells the gang to leave their keys for Treeger.

In Somebody Somewhere, Hagerty played Everett’s character Sam’s father. The acclaimed HBO comedy drama was renewed for a second season earlier this year.

Hagerty played a small role in Curb Your Enthusiasm, as a character named Mike Duffy, “the AAMCO guy”, who is star-struck when he meets Larry David because of his love of the show Seinfeld.

He also appeared in the TV shows Cheers, The George Carlin Show, Lucky Louie, Entourage, Glee and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, as well as the films Brewster’s Millions, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Inspector Gadget, Rampage: The Hillside Strangler Murders and Thin Ice.

Hagerty is survived by his wife Mary Kathryn and his sister Mary Ann.
