Rest in peace, Steven Hill.
The Law & Order star sadly died at age 94 on Tuesday, Aug. 23, his daughter Sarah Gobioff confirmed to The New York Times.
Steven was best known for playing district attorney Adam Schiff on Law & Order — for which he earned two Emmy nominations — for 10 seasons from 1990 to 2000. He also famously portrayed Dan Briggs on the 1960s TV series Mission: Impossible.

"Steven was not only one of the truly great actors of his generation, he was one of the most intelligent people I have ever met," Law & Order creator Dick Wolf said in a statement. "He is also the only actor I've known who consistently tried to cut his own lines. He will be missed."
