An actor from early “The Office” episodes is dead.
TMZ reports Mark York, who is best known for playing Billy Merchant, died last week. He was 55. York reportedly died shortly after an “illness” but there has been no reports on what it was.
Mark, a paraplegic since 1988, had a memorable moment with Steve Carell in “The Office” episode “The Injury” when he was brought in to speak at Michael Scott’s disability awareness meeting.
In addition to his two seasons on “The Office” he was also featured on “CSI: New York.”
