Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman actor Eddie Jones has passed away at the age of 82 according to a Facebook post from the Interact Theater Company, with whom Jones reportedly had a longstanding association as a performer and colleague.

"Our treasured longtime member, dear friend and trusted colleague, Eddie Jones, passed away today," reads the statement. "Eddie was a true pillar of our company from its earliest days. An actor of keen wit and sharp instinct, when Eddie was on stage, you couldn't take your eyes off him.

"When he was off-stage, his broad, bright smile would light up the room," the statement continues. "Everyone who knew Eddie as a friend, or had the good fortune to share the stage with him, was touched by his gentle and generous nature. He will be deeply missed by all. ITC extends its deepest condolences to his dear, devoted wife Anita Khanzadian Jones, and extended family. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest, Eddie."

Jones appeared as Pa Kent in for all of Lois & Clark's seasons, and had acting credits up through 2018. In addition to Lois & Clark, Jones had roles in The Rocketeer, Dark Shadows, A League of their Own, and Seabiscuit.

No cause of death was reported by ITC.
