Lloyd’s son, Michael Lloyd, said his father died Tuesday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Lloyd was known for playing Mr. Nolan in “Dead Poet’s Society” and was nominated for two Emmy awards for producing the TV series “The Name of the Game” in 1970 and the made-for-television movie “Steambath” in 1974.
His acting days date clear back to Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre troupe and was part of its very first production: a Broadway adaptation of “Julius Caesar” originally by William Shakespeare.
He also had a role in the historic television series “Kraft Theater,” appearing twice in 1956 before a 1957 appearance in “General Electric Theater.”
Other high-profile television credits include “The Twilight Zone,” “Murder, She Wrote,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “St. Elsewhere,” on which, he portrayed Dr. Daniel Auschlander for 132 episodes from 1982-1988. His Dr. Daniel Auschlander was originally only supposed to appear in a few episodes, but Lloyd became a series regular and stayed with the show for the entire run. The series would inspire such shows as “E.R.” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Most recently, he appeared in the Amy Schumer-written and -starring “Trainwreck” in 2015.
