Hollywood is reeling after beloved “Everwood” star Treat Williams died in a shocking Monday in Vermont.
The 71-year-old actor had primarily appeared in TV movies and episodes in recent years, and had recently accepted a key role in Ryan Murphy’s “Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans,” reports Deadline.
The upcoming FX miniseries, an adaptation of Laurence Leamer’s bestselling book “Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era,” follows Truman Capote from the mid-1970s until the eccentric author’s death in 1984.
Williams had accepted the part of CBS co-founder Bill Paley, joining a cast that also included Naomi Watts, Molly Ringwald and Tom Hollander.
The Post reached out to Williams’ rep, Murphy and FX for comment.
According to the “Hair” star’s IMDb page, Williams was also set to appear in the upcoming series “Nightbirds” and the film “American Outlaws,” based on the true story of three siblings who perpetuated a cross-country crime spree in 2011.
His long resume includes “1941” (1979), “Prince of the City” (1981), “The Deep End of the Ocean” (1999), “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous” (2005) and “Second Act” (2018).
, Williams posted a video to his Instagram that was captioned “Hay day.”
The actor also shared a picture taken at his Vermont farm, of himself on a lawnmower, shortly before the crash.
“There is no better smell than new mown hay,” reads the caption.
According to police, the “Phantom” actor was struck by a driver who didn’t see his motorcycle while making a turn.
Fans and celebrities have been offering their condolences on social media since news of Williams’ death broke Monday.
“5 hours ago you were sharing your beautiful home with us & now we have lost you. Sending love to your loved ones. Godspeed,” one person wrote.
Matt Bomer, who worked alongside Williams on “White Collar,” called him an “absolute treasure” on Instagram.
“He taught me in the most beautiful way — through patient example. He’s one of the few actors I’ve worked with who always checked in on me — even years after we worked together,” Bomer wrote. “Treat — you were an amazing actor and an even better person and I will miss you. I count myself so blessed to have known you.”
Williams’ family released a statement to Deadline that read, “It is with great sadness that we report that our beloved Treat Williams has passed away tonight in Dorset, Vermont after a fatal motorcycle accident. As you can imagine, we are shocked and greatly bereaved at this time.
“Treat was full of love for his family, for his life and for his craft, and was truly at the top of his game in all of it. It is all so shocking right now, but please know that Treat was dearly and deeply loved and respected by his family and everyone who knew him.”
