He started acting in his 40s and continued performing into his 90s, known for his work in Chicago theaters and collaborations with David Mamet.

Despite primarily being a stage actor, he also had notable film roles.

A private funeral is planned, with a public memorial service scheduled for next year.

“He was a good father and a good man who raised us to care about other people and respect other people and care about justice,” said Mike’s daughter, Karen Nussbaum.

“I am gifted and lucky to still be able to do the thing that is the most fun for me in life,” said Mike In 2015.

“As long as I can do it, I will,” he continued.

Mike’s friend, B.J. Jones said, “His genius was that you couldn’t tell he was acting.”

“His level of truth was unparalleled. You never saw him sweat. He wasn’t trying to draw attention to himself,” added Jones.
