Actor, Joseph Wayne Miller dies at 36 in Chicago

Heavyweights star Joseph Wayne Miller died at his home in Chicago on January 9, TMZ reported Wednesday.

Miller's mother told TMZ that her son suffered from sleep apnea and died in his sleep on Tuesday. His girlfriend reportedly found his body.

The classic film about a weight loss camp for kids co-written by Judd Apatow and director Steven Brill also starred Ben Stiller as the fitness-obsessed camp owner and Kenan Thompson as a camper.

"When we made Heavyweights being around Joe Miller was pure joy", the filmmaker said in a statement. Here's what we know about the untimely passing of the '90s actor. "What a awful loss". His cause of death was not immediately known.

He later reflected on his time with the actor to Page Six.

'Rest In Peace buddy, ' he wrote.

"Joe always brought the fun to the set", he told the outlet.

Fans of 90s pop culture will recognize Miller from his role as Salami Sam in the hit family film Heavyweights.

Heavyweights served as Miller's sole acting credit.
