Yeah, definitely one of the top "hey, it's that guy" character actors. I first saw him in My Cousin Vinny, which was classic, but the first thing I think of with him is his fine work as Peter's boss on White Collar.
It was always good to see his name in the credits of a show, and it's sad that that won't happen anymore. RIP.
