LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lee Reherman, a fan favorite as the towering, muscular Hawk on television’s “American Gladiators,” has died at age 49.
Reherman, who went on to a successful career as an actor-producer after “Gladiators,” died Tuesday at his home in Manhattan Beach, California.
The cause of death wasn’t immediately known.
But Reherman’s publicist, Anthony Turk, says the actor hadn’t been feeling well after recently undergoing hip replacement surgery.
