Spellos’ friend and co-star Fred Olan paid tribute on Facebook, sharing three photos of the pair.
“It is with tremendous sadness that I must report the passing of my dear friend, Peter Spellos at 2.30am this morning,” he wrote.
“Many of you knew Peter personally. He had more loving friends than there are stars in the sky. A gentler giant never existed.
“A talented actor, teacher and wise old owl. He always made me laugh.
“I cannot even recall how many movies we made together, but they would probably fill a book … maybe someday they will. Goodbye, pal.”
Spellos and Olan worked together on a series of projects including Vampirella, Munchie, Dinosaur Island, Masseuse, Hard To Die, and Bikini Drive-In.
In a five-decade career, some of Spellos’ greatest work includes voicing Sky-Byte in the 2000 Transformers: Robots In Disguise series and Motorman in the 2002 film Men In Black II.
Other work included voicing characters in the video game Dragon’s Dogma, and acting work on ER, NYPD Blue and Yes Man.
The 69-year-old was also the founder and creative director of The Usual Suspects Improvisation Company and taught acting and direction at The Artists Gym, according to his website.
Spellos is survived by his brother, James.
