“It is with great sadness that the Hurt family mourns the passing of William Hurt, beloved father and Oscar winning actor, on March 13, 2022, one week before his 72nd birthday,” his son Will said in a statement obtained by Deadline and reported by other outlets. “He died peacefully, among family, of natural causes.
