Larry Drake, best known for his Emmy-winning role in L.A. Law, has died, PEOPLE can confirm. He was 66.

“He was such a nice man and a great actor,” Drake’s agent Mike Eisenstadt tells PEOPLE.

The actor was found dead in his Hollywood home on Thursday, TMZ reports.

In 1988 and 1989, Drake won consecutive outstanding supporting actor Emmys for playing mentally-impaired office worker Benny Stulwicz in L.A. Law. He reprised his role in 2002’s L.A. Law: The Movie.

He was also featured in Darkman (1990) and Bean (1997) and also had minor roles in episodes of 7th Heaven (2006) and Boston Legal (2008).

In addition, Drake did voiceover work on animated series such as Justice League, What’s New, Scooby-Doo? and most notably Johnny Bravo from 1999-2004.
