Dunder Mifflin fans have lost a member of their TV family — Hugh Dane, who famously played Hank the security guard on “The Office,” has died.
One of Hugh’s costars on the sitcom, Rainn Wilson, tweeted out the news Monday with a link to a nonprofit Hugh was involved with. The org., The Inner City Cultural Center in L.A., posted about Hugh’s death late last month … they say he died in mid-May.

It’s unclear what Hugh might’ve died from — the ICCC didn’t provide any details about the circumstances surrounding his death. They did mention, however, he’ll be honored through a memorial this weekend.
Hugh had a long acting career dating back to the 1990s. Besides his recurring role as Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch enforcer … he’s also appeared on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Martin,” “Boy Meets World,” “Everybody Hates Chris,” “The West Wing,” “Friends,” “Sister, Sister,” “The Steve Harvey Show,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “New Girl” and lots of other shows and films.
He was 75. Here’s to Hank, and his blues … RIP.
