NEW YORK — James Rebhorn, the prolific character actor whose credits included “Homeland,” “Scent of a Woman” and “My Cousin Vinny,” has died. He was 65.

Rebhorn’s agent, Dianne Busch, said Sunday that the actor died Friday at his home in South Orange, N.J., after a long battle with skin cancer.

In five decades of television and film work, Rebhorn amassed more than 100 credits, including a shipping magnate in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and the prosecutor in the series finale of “Seinfeld,” in which he famously sent the group to jail.

The lanky but piercing Rebhorn, a Philadelphia native raised in Anderson, Ind., often played astringent authorities, including the headmaster in “Scent of a Woman” and the secretary of Defense in “Independence Day.”

On “Homeland,” he played the father of Claire Danes’ CIA officer Carrie Mathison. He also had a recurring role on the USA Network series “White Collar” playing the FBI head of a white-collar crime unit.

He is survived by his wife, Rebecca Linn, and two daughters.
