Mike Hagerty Dies: ‘Friends’ & ‘Somebody Somewhere’ Actor Was 67
By Lynette Rice

Mike Hagerty, best known for his roles on Somebody Somewhere, as the building super Mr. Treeger on Friends and as the surly owner of a used-clothing store on Seinfeld, has died. His death April 29 was confirmed by Bridget Everett, who plays his daughter on the HBO comedy. No cause was given.

“With great sadness, the family of Michael G. Hagerty announced his death yesterday in Los Angeles,” wrote Everett on Instagram. “A beloved character actor, his love of his hometown of Chicago and his family were the cornerstones of his life. … He will be sorely missed.”

A longtime character actor, Hagerty entered the zeitgeist when he was cast as Mr. Treeger on Friends in 1995 and recurred in the role until 2001. In 2013, he joined the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Captain McGinley. And in 2022, he joined Everett in her breakout comedy Somebody Somewhere as patriarch Ed Miller.

He also had a memorable role on Seinfeld in the classic 1994 episode “The Raincoats.” Hagerty played Rudy, owner of a downtown vintage clothing store (New Yorkers got the joke: Rudy’s Antique Boutique was a real-life second-hand shop, beloved by hipsters and NYU students of the ’80s and ’90s) who purchased some old beltless raincoats (“The Executive” model) from Michael Richards’ Kramer and Barney Martin’s Morty Seinfeld. Later, Rudy is shown setting fire to the beloved cabana-wear of Jerry Stiller’s Frank Costanza, his inventory having been infested from the moth-ridden raincoats.

Hagerty also made multiple appearances in TV shows as varied as The Wonder Years, The Drew Carey Show, Arli$$, ER and Deadwood.

Earlier in his career, Hagerty made mid-1980s appearances on, among other shows,Brewster’s Millions, Married With Children, Family Times and Murphy Brown. In 1987, he appeared on the big screen in the Goldie Hawn-Kurt Russell comedy Overboard.

By the 1990s, Hagerty was a familiar and prolific TV guest star, appearing in Dear John, American Dreamer, The Wonder Years, Civil Wars, Martin, The Building, Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Wayans Bros., Sisters and Union Square. He had recurring roles on the short-lived The George Carlin Show and The Home Court.

From 1995 to 2001, Hagerty recurred as the building super Mr. Treeger in five episodes of the NBC juggernaut comedy Friends. He was introduced in the 1995 episode “The One Where Heckles Dies” and later threatened to have Rachel and Monica (Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston) evicted over illegal subletting and got Joey (Matt LeBlanc) to teach him how to dance. Treeger is the last character mentioned on the series, when Monica told Chandler (Matthew Perry) in the 2004 final scene, “I almost forgot – I promised Treeger that we’d leave our key.”


He is survived by his wife Mary Kathryn; his sister, Mary Ann Hagerty; her wife, Kathleen O’Rourke; and their daughter Meg.

Sources have named the cause of death of 'Friends' star Mike Hagerty

The actor fell into a coma due to an adverse reaction to an antibiotic.

Friends actor Mike Hagerty died after a severe adverse reaction to an antibiotic in a hospital. He slipped into a coma after a seizure and never regained consciousness.

According to sources, Mike contracted an infection on one leg in April, he recovered, but was not yet feeling well. Before filming the second season of Somebody Somewhere, the doctor sent the actor to the hospital for a checkup. Hagerty was given an antibiotic.

Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse. He was given an antibiotic, and he had a terrible reaction... which resulted in him having a seizure and going into a coma, TMZ informs.

Always sucks when people go due a medical situation that was potentially avoidable.
