Glenne Headly, the actress known for roles in "Dick Tracy," "Mr. Holland's Opus," and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," has died at age 63.

A cause of death wasn't immediately reported.

Headly was in production on the Hulu series "Future Man," produced by Seth Rogen, when the show's executives were notified of her death, Deadline reported.
