Actor and native Texan Rip Torn passed away yesterday at the age of 88.

Torn won an Emmy for his work on The Larry Sanders Show, but newer audiences might know him best for his more recent roles, including that of Patches O'Houlihan in Dodgeball: A Tue Underdog Story.

Torn was born Elmore Rual Torn in Temple, Texas, in 1931.  He passed yesterday afternoon inside his home, surrounded by his wife, Amy Wright, and his daughters, Katie Torn and Angelica Page.  No cause of death has yet to be given.
