James Michael Tyler, Central Perk's Gunther on 'Friends,' dies at 59 of prostate cancer

James Michael Tyler, the actor famous for playing Central Perk employee Gunther on “Friends,” has died of prostate cancer. He was 59.

Tyler died “peacefully in his home” on Sunday, according to a statement from Tyler’s manager Toni Benson.

“The world knew him as Gunther the seventh ‘Friend,’ but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband,” the statement said.

In June, Gunther revealed he was undergoing chemotherapy treatment after being diagnosed with Stage 4 prostate cancer.

“I’m sorry to say that I’m not appearing today with you to announce that there’s a ‘Friends’ movie,” Tyler told the “Today” show. “Actually, I’m here to let you know that in September of 2018, I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer.”

The story is developing.
