Gregory Itzin, star of “24,” “NCIS” and several other huge TV hits, has died … according to a close friend and co-worker.

Gregory played U.S. Prez Charles Logan for 6 years on “24” … a brilliant role, alongside Kiefer Sutherland, that earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor.

Sorry for the spoiler (it’s been more than 10 years, though), but Itzin’s villain turn in the series is pretty epic.

My friend Greg Itzin passed away today.He was one of the most talented actors I had the honor to work with, but more than that he was an all around great guy. He’ll be missed by his 24 family who had nothing but love & respect for him. You made your mark, now Rest In Peace friend pic.twitter.com/IbrhAQXix2
